Passive Tactile Stimulation for Stroke Rehabilitation
Stroke can lead to weakness and spasticity in the arm or hand. The purpose of this study is to optimize the design of gentle vibratory stimulation delivered to the hands of individuals with chronic stroke, and explore the effect on range of movement and spasticity.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
