[ARMOR: an electromechanical robot for upper limb training following stroke. A prospective randomised controlled pilot study].

Mayr A, Kofler M, Saltuari L

Due to the complexity of the upper motor neuron syndrome, functional improvement in the paretic upper limb after stroke continues to be a challenge in neurorehabilitation. Robot-assisted training has been shown to be useful in relearning gait. In order to achieve similar results in the upper limb, an electromechanical arm...

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation for motor restoration in hemiplegia.

Chae J, Sheffler L, Knutson J

Clinical applications of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) in stroke rehabilitation provide both therapeutic and functional benefits. Therapeutic applications include upper and lower limb motor relearning and reduction of poststroke shoulder pain. There is growing evidence that NMES, especially those approaches that incorporate task-specific strategies, is effective in facilitating upper and...

The effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation on clinical improvement in hemiplegic lower extremity rehabilitation in chronic stroke: a single-blind, randomised, controlled trial.

Mesci N, Ozdemir F, Kabayel DD, Tokuc B

In this study, the effectiveness of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) was evaluated in lower extremity rehabilitation in patients with chronic stroke.The study enrolled 40 patients with chronic stroke. Twenty patients each were assigned to the treatment group and the control group. All patients received a conventional rehabilitation program for a...

Contralaterally controlled neuromuscular electrical stimulation for recovery of ankle dorsiflexion: a pilot randomized controlled trial in patients with chronic post-stroke hemiplegia.

Knutson JS, Hansen K, Nagy J, Bailey SN, Gunzler DD, Sheffler LR, Chae J

The aim of this study was to compare the effects of contralaterally controlled neuromuscular electrical stimulation (CCNMES) vs. cyclic neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) on lower extremity impairment, functional ambulation, and gait characteristics.Twenty-six survivors of stroke with chronic (≥6 mos) foot drop during ambulation were randomly assigned to 6 wks of...

Mirror Therapy with Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation for improving motor function of stroke survivors: A pilot randomized clinical study.

Lee D, Lee G, Jeong J

This study was to investigate the effects of Mirror Therapy (MT) combined with Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) on muscle strength and tone, motor function, balance, and gait ability in stroke survivors with hemiplegia.This study was a randomized controlled trial. Twenty-seven hemiplegic stroke survivors from a rehabilitation center participated in the...

Combination of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation and Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation Improves Gait Ability in a Patient in Chronic Stage of Stroke.

Satow T, Kawase T, Kitamura A, Kajitani Y, Yamaguchi T, Tanabe N, Otoi R, Komuro T, Kobayashi A, Nagata H, Mima T

Walking ability is important in stroke patients to maintain daily life. Nevertheless, its improvement is limited with conventional physical therapy in chronic stage. We report the case of a chronic stroke patient showing a remarkable improvement in gait function after a new neurorehabilitation protocol using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)...

Effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation on gait performance in chronic stroke with inadequate ankle control – A randomized controlled trial.

Yang YR, Mi PL, Huang SF, Chiu SL, Liu YC, Wang RY

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) has been used to improve muscle strength and decrease spasticity of the ankle joint in stroke patients. However, it is unclear how NMES could influence dynamic spasticity of ankle plantarflexors and gait asymmetry during walking. The study aimed to evaluate the effects of applying NMES over...
