Approaches to identify electrode arrays for stimulating hand motion in early stroke rehabilitation

Takeaway

  • Effectiveness and user assessments of two approaches to identify electrode array elements for functional electrical stimulation (FES) of hand motion during early stroke rehabilitation were similar, leading investigators to recommend use of the approaches according to individual patient and health professional (HP) preferences.

Why this matters

    Patient and HP assessments during development of rehabilitation technologies is expected to improve their usability and acceptance.
