Abstract: Aims: The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the effects of Virtual Reality technology and haptics for stroke rehabilitation. Aims were to assess motor training in the so called chronic phase after stroke and to evaluate whether any improvement detected in the VR environment is reflected in daily life. We wanted to establish normative kinematic reference values and to test a method for assessing visuospatial neglect. Methods: One hundred and six subjects participated in four different st... more
