Writing in Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, 04/01/2013, Dr. dos Santos–Fontes RL et al from University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil look at the benefits of Home-Based Nerve Stimulation to Enhance Effects of Motor Training in Patients in the Chronic Phase After Stroke.

The group measure the improvements in paretic arm performance in the chronic phase after stroke to show that Somatosensory stimulation and repetitive  peripheral nerve sensory stimulation improve motor function of the upper limb in home therapy of chronic stroke.
