Abstract

<p><b>A.</b> Wrist MAS score was significantly reduced by 100 Hz TEAS compared with 2 Hz or sham TEAS. Data were analyzed by repeated-measures ANOVA. The * represents significant difference between 100 Hz and sham, <i>P</i> < 0.05; <sup>#</sup> represents significant difference between 100 Hz and 2 Hz, <i>P</i> < 0.05; <sup>&</sup> represents significant difference between 2 Hz and sham. <b>B</b>. Wrist MAS score in patients treated with 100 Hz TEAS was significantly decreased from baseline during treatment and at follow-up visits. Comparison with baseline values was analyzed by repeated-measures ANOVA. The wrist MAS scores were used for the statistical analysis. Data were presented as mean ± standard error. The * represents significant differences between post-treatment and the baseline value, <i>P</i> < 0.05. <b>C</b>. Thumb MAS score was not affected by treatments. <b>D.</b> The MAS score of the other 4 fingers was not affected by treatments. Results are from the analysis on ITT data set. ANOVA = analysis of variance. MAS = Modified Ashworth Scale. TEAS = transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation.</p
