Upper limb arm and hand home-based exercise training for people after stroke in the UK

New research in the UK will be conducted on administering Physiotherapy at home after stroke. Neuro physical therapists from Bristol, Birmingham and Newcastle will recruit patients with upper-limb motor impairment including shoulder  and hand movement deficits after discharge from hospital post-stroke. The stroke patients will be up to 12 months post stroke. The primary outcome measures for assessment of arm function will be the Action Research Arm Test (ARAT) and Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT). The secondary measures will be the Motor Activity Log, Stroke Impact Scale, Carer Strain Index, and health and social care resource use.
