Enriched, task specific therapy in the chronic phase after stroke
Recovery and improvement of motor functions and abilities after stroke depend on the spontaneous recovery process but also on the reorganization of neural mechanisms. In animal studies, an Enriched Environment (EE) has ...
Development and validation of upper extremity kinematic movement analysis for people with stroke. Reaching and drinking from a glass.
Kinematic analysis is a powerful method for objective assessment of movement performance, and is increasingly employed as outcome measure after stroke. The number of studies investigating natural, goal-oriented daily tasks ...
Participation after stroke in a short- and long-term perspective
The main scope of this thesis was to study and describe perceived participation among persons with stroke. In doing so, different timepoints were chosen to make a more complete picture of participation after stroke. The ...
Physical performance and physical activity in the later stage post-stroke
Aims: The overall purpose of this thesis was to increase knowledge about physical performance and activity in the later stage post-stroke by measuring walking performance in different environments coupled to muscle strength, ...
Virtual reality based kinematics for assessment of post-stroke upper limb function
The main scope of this thesis was to develop a method for assessing the upper limb sensorimotor function following stroke using virtual reality-based technique. The studies reported in this thesis included 67 individuals ...
