An investigation into the effect of an eight week rehabilitation programme on motor performance of stroke survivors.

This project is an intensive eight-week upper limb rehabilitation programme. Approximately 70% of stroke survivors are left with movement problems and only approximately 5% regain full arm function. The arm and hand movement deficits that stroke survivors experience interfere with their ability to carry out essential, everyday tasks, reducing independence and quality of life. This programme aims to reduce these deficits by providing a daily eight-week rehabilitation programme. Exercises are to be completed six days per week at home and once per week in the laboratory where movements will be recorded using motion tracking cameras.
