In the May edition of the Lancet Dr. Langhorne and his group from the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK and the National Stroke Research Institute looked at several large trials of rehabilitation practice and of novel therapies. The group found evidence that high-intensity therapy, and repetitive task training including physical physiotherapy and occupational training can improve functional gait and other activities of daily living.

The HandTutor, LegTutor, ArmTutor and 3DTutor are wearable ergonomic braces that provide augmented movement feedback and motivate the patient to do intensive active Intensive exercise practice. Repetitive intensive exercises  have been shown to improve functional walking, reaching and grasping rehabilitation outcome or ADL functional performance and rehabiliation outcome.
