Previously, research has focused more towards lower limb impairment and rehabilitation for people with multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s Disease (PD) or stroke. However, arm and hand difficulties is another common symptom and can negatively impact activities of daily living, quality of life, functional status and independence.

Therefore, the aim of the current study is to discover experiences of arm and hand problems primarily in those with MS, stroke and PD and to investigate whether assistive devices are already available. The collated information has the potential to shape future research and may indicate requirements for novel supportive devices that could work across several neurological conditions.
