Assessing outcomes is vital in any hand therapy practice setting, as it is the primary method of determining whether or not a treatment program is working.

However, there was no significant difference between groups with respect to functional mobility or daily living skills. A year-old male came to our clinic with amputation at the 1st to 4th carpometacarpal level and a 5th metacarpal that was projected laterally and fused with the carpal bone.

Combining intensive practice in a variety of modalities, although targeting to the UE is associated with substantial improvement both in the upper as well as in the lower extremity function. Participants underwent clinical assessments at baseline and again 6 weeks later with instructions to not initiate talor therapies.

Females also scored worse on body image This study examined the development of gnostic hand function in children from 3 to 11 years of age who drew the outlines of a meaningless wooden object passively felt with each hand without visual control.

For internal consistency, Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was utilized. To examine the relationships between left right judgements, tactile acuity and hand pain. Age, height, weight, and tesg hand of all participants were recorded. The groups were compared with each other and with norms with respect to pinch strength, the performance of bimanual activities and in- hand manipulation, and questionnaires regarding psychosocial status and the ability to perform activities of daily living ADLs.


We interpreted this phenomenon as patients’ potential inability to recruit facilitatory activations while performing two movements simultaneously. We developed the MusicGlove as a way to facilitate and motivate at home practice of hand movement. We tested the hypothesis that somatosensory system injury would more strongly affect movement than motor system injury in children with unilateral cerebral palsy USCP.


On the road to a neuroprosthetic hand: An additional recruitment of brain regions and increased striato-cortical and striato-cerebellar functional connections is needed when early learning is performed with the nondominant hand. We evaluated hand grip strength and function in patients with overt hyperthyroidism. The integration of digital systems accelerometry and electromyography as a tool to supplement functional assessment allows the clinician to know more about the motor component and its relation to movement.

The extension deficit decreased, and there was a transient txylor in active finger flexion during the first year after surgery.

Each task is timed independently and the overall time is recorded. Validity of semi-quantitative scale for brain MRI in unilateral cerebral palsy due to periventricular white matter lesions: The men were significantly stronger than the women in both HGS and KPS p hand strength of the study cohort was lower than that of elderly Western populations.

Ulnar palsy is also important because of the vital motor role of that nerve in hand function. In another patient, no arm- hand skill performance improvement was observed. Adapting a Robot Hand to Specialized Functions.

PD subjects took a longer time to complete the JTT, suggesting that they have deficits fujction gross and fine functional dexterity. Relationship between writing skills and visual-motor control in low-vision students.

For millennia, humans have used state-of-the-art technology to design clever devices to facilitate the reintegration of hand amputees into society. This is particularly the case for instruments that allow a quantitative evaluation of upper limb functionand especially hand function in patients who have undergone an amputation and then application of an upper limb prosthesis. This hypothesis was based on how somatosensory and corticospinal circuits adapt to injury during development; whereas the motor system can maintain connections to the impaired hand from the uninjured hemisphere, this does not occur in the somatosensory system.

Implications for rehabilitation Arm- teet training featuring the dynamic hand orthosis in funcction with electrical stimulation shows a shift from no dexterity to dexterity.

This paper reports the structure design of a two-DoF sim-PH with two motors to drive the CM joint of the thumb and the interlocked MP joints of the other four fingers. Functional ttest stimulation enhancement of upper extremity functional recovery during stroke rehabilitation: The cortical activation pattern by a rehabilitation robotic hand: Chronic forced use of the non-dominant left hand yields substantial improvements in the precision and quality of writing and drawing.

Ultrasound imaging data showed that the CSAs of both ECR and TRI muscles of the affected upper limb at relaxation and contraction states were enhanced and these therapy-induced morphological changes were associated with enhanced muscle strength and gross motor performance in reaching and grasping skills.
