AMOCO: Assays of Upper Limb Motor Control in People with Neurological Disease and Healthy Individuals
What Do We Do?
Difficulty with movement of the arm and hand are common after a stroke and are associated with increased need for assistance in performing daily activities and decreased quality of life for patients. Understanding the nature of movement difficulties after stroke is essential to developing appropriate interventions to reduce stroke-related disability. The purpose of this study is to measure the quality of arm and hand movements in people with stroke and healthy individuals using devices and cameras that allow us to obtain detailed information about their movements.
What should I expect at each visit?
During each visit you will perform reaching movements while the characteristics of your arm movement is measured using robotic devices or video analysis.
The number of visits and time between visits will vary. You will have the choice to participate in 1-10 visits. Visits will be arranged at a date and time that is convenient for you.
