Influence of Timing on Motor Learning
Influence of Timing on Motor Learning

The purpose of this research study is to compare different methods for training hand movement at home after stroke. This study involves research because it will test two experimental devices, the MusicGlove and the Resonating Arm Exerciser (RAE), compared to conventional hand and arm exercises. The MusicGlove is a glove that measures finger movements and allows its user to play a musical computer game using those movements. The RAE is a lever that attaches to a manual wheelchair with elastic bands and can be pushed back and forth to exercise the arm.

  • Other: Conventional hand exercise
    Conventional hand exercise consists of passive and active range of motion exercise, and simple coordination exercises with the fingers
  • Device: MusicGlove
    The MusicGlove is a glove that detects different grip types. Subjects play a musical game by completing different grips.
  • Other: Conventional Arm Exercise
    Conventional arm exercise consists of passive and active range of motion exercise, and simple weight bearing exercises
  • Device: Resonating Arm Exerciser
    The RAE is a lever that attaches to a manual wheelchair with elastic bands and can be pushed back and forth to exercise the arm.
    Other Name: RAE
  • Experimental: MusicGlove Group
    Subject participates in 3 weeks of exercising with the experimental device: MusicGlove at a minimum of 3 days per week, 1 hour per day with the exercise program
    Intervention: Device: MusicGlove
  • Active Comparator: Control Group for Music Glove
    Subject participates in 3 weeks of conventional hand exercise program, at a minimum of 3 days per week, 1 hour per day with the exercise program.
    Intervention: Other: Conventional hand exercise
  • Experimental: Resonating Arm Exerciser (RAE)
    Subject participates in 3 weeks of exercising with the experimental device: RAE at a minimum of 3 days per week, 1 hour per day with the exercise program
    Intervention: Device: Resonating Arm Exerciser
  • Active Comparator: Control Group for RAE
    Subject participates in 3 weeks of conventional arm exercise program, at a minimum of 3 days per week, 1 hour per day with the exercise program.
    Intervention: Other: Conventional Arm Exercise
