In the March edition of Neurorehabil Neural Repair Dr. Butler and his team from Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Emory University School of Medicine and Atlanta Veterans Administration Medical Center, Atlanta, GA, USA show a correlation between clinical outcome measures, such as the Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT) and the upper limb portion of the Fugl-Meyer (FM) motor assessment, and neuroimaging techniques, such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and blood oxygenation level–dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Treatment using virtual functional tasks provided by the HandTutor, ArmTutor, LegTutor system have been proven to improve the patients functional ability in neurological and orthopedic injuries and disease.
