Analysis of the Fugl-Meyer outcome measures assessing the effectiveness of robot-mediated stroke therapy

By F. Amirabdollahian, W.S. Harwin and R.C.V. Loureiro

Abstract

Robot-mediated therapies offer a new approach to neurorehabilitation. This paper analyses the Fugl-Meyer data from the Gentle/S project and finds that the two intervention phases (sling suspension and robot mediated therapy) have approximately equal value to the further recovery of chronic stroke subjects (on average 27 months post stroke). Both sling suspension and robot mediated interventions show a recovery over baseline and further work is needed to establish the common factors in treatment, and to establish intervention protocols for each that will give individual subjects a maximum level of recovery
