Description

Summary

The investigators would like to investigate the effectiveness of somatosensory training for robot-assisted hand motor rehabilitation after stroke.

Details

From previous studies, the investigators learned that stroke survivors with impaired finger proprioception did not achieve as large a functional benefit from robotic finger training. For this study, the investigators would like to determine if and the extent of finger proprioception can be improved through targeted robotic proprioceptive training combined with robotic finger movement training. The investigators would also include imagining studies via Electroencephalogram (EEG) and other baseline predictors to provide insight to determine who responds best to proprioceptive training.
