  Purpose

Power-assisted therapeutic electrical stimulation (TES) or conventional TES to upper extremities in acute stroke patients were performed in a randomized controlled trial. The changes in finger and hand function will be evaluated. The hypothesis is that a power-assisted TES is more effective than a conventional TES.
