Clinical Trial Summary

To examine the effects of using a virtual reality (VR) system to improve upper limb motor function among subacute hemiparetic stroke patients. Under this aim, the investigators have two objectives: (1) to develop and test a procedure for the quantitative assessment of stroke patients in a virtual environment; and (2) to compare the outcome measures of the two groups of stroke patients (VR-intervention vs. conventional-control) on these two modes of training.


Clinical Trial Description

After being informed about the study and potential risks, all participants who gave written consent will undergo the study. A randomized controlled trial with pre-/post-study, of 42 stroke patients with upper limb weakness (21 patients in the control group and 21 patients in the intervention group), 18-65 years old, all are newly admitted stroke patients in the rehabilitation clinic from one hospital. Participants in the intervention group will receive 60 minutes of VR training to improve upper limb function and daily living activities. Participants in the control group will receive 60 minutes of conventional training to improve upper limb function and daily living activities. The training includes grasp, grip, pinch, gross, and finger-hand coordination movement. The training will perform 5 times/week for 4 weeks. Two outcome measures: (a) The Barthel Index and (b) The Fugl-Meyer Assessment, time spent to complete a task were used to compare two groups. ;
