Abstract: The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate upper extremity functioning during the first year after stroke from different perspectives. Methods. All patients with first ever stroke, admitted to a stroke unit within 72 hours after stroke incidence were included during a period of 18 months. The prevalence of impaired upper extremity function was investigated within 72 hours. Differences in change over time in functioning (function and activity) between patients with ischemic and hemorrhag... more
