In the February edition of Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair http://bit.ly/grWa4B Dr. Whitall and his group from School of Medicine, University of Maryland, Baltimore, Maryland, USA, Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center Geriatrics Research, Baltimore, Maryland, USA, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA and University Hospital of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland show that Bilateral arm training with rhythmic auditory cueing( BATRAC) is not superior to dose–matched therapeutic exercises (DMTE). However both rehabilitation programs durably improve motor function for individuals with chronic upper–extremity hemiparesis and with varied deficit severity.
The HandTutor system encourages upper extremity active exercise practice and has been proven effective in the treatment of chronic upper–extremity hemiparesis patients.
