Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Muscle Tone as Measured by the Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) in the Elbow at Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The MAS assessed the degree of muscle tone during movement of the elbow compared to normal muscle tone using a 6-point scale where: 0=no increase in muscle tone, 1=Slight increase in muscle tone manifested by a catch and release or by minimal resistance at the end of the range of motion when the part is moved, 1+=Slight increase in muscle tone manifested by a catch followed by minimal resistance throughout the remainder of the range of motion, 2=Marked increase in muscle tone through most of the range of motion but affected part easily moved, 3=Considerable increase in muscle tone passive movement difficult or 4=Affected part rigid in movement or extension. A low score indicated little or no stiffness (best). A high score indicated severe stiffness (worse). The number of participants in each score category is presented.

  • Muscle Tone as Measured by the Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) in the Elbow at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    The MAS assessed the degree of muscle tone during movement of the elbow compared to normal muscle tone using a 6-point scale where: 0=no increase in muscle tone, 1=Slight increase in muscle tone manifested by a catch and release or by minimal resistance at the end of the range of motion when the part is moved, 1+=Slight increase in muscle tone manifested by a catch followed by minimal resistance throughout the remainder of the range of motion, 2=Marked increase in muscle tone through most of the range of motion but affected part easily moved, 3=Considerable increase in muscle tone passive movement difficult or 4=Affected part rigid in movement or extension. A low score indicated little or no stiffness (best). A high score indicated severe stiffness (worse). The number of participants in each score category is presented.

  • Muscle Tone as Measured by the Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) in the Wrist at Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The MAS assessed the degree of muscle tone during movement of the wrist compared to normal muscle tone using a 6-point scale where: 0=no increase in muscle tone, 1=Slight increase in muscle tone manifested by a catch and release or by minimal resistance at the end of the range of motion when the part is moved, 1+=Slight increase in muscle tone manifested by a catch followed by minimal resistance throughout the remainder of the range of motion, 2=Marked increase in muscle tone through most of the range of motion but affected part easily moved, 3=Considerable increase in muscle tone passive movement difficult or 4=Affected part rigid in movement or extension. A low score indicated little or no stiffness (best). A high score indicated severe stiffness (worse). The number of participants in each score category is presented.

A low score indicated little or no stiffness (best). A high score indicated severe stiffness (worse). The number of participants in each score category is presented.

  • Muscle Tone as Measured by the Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) in the Fingers at Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The MAS assessed the degree of muscle tone during movement of the fingers compared to normal muscle tone using a 6-point scale where: 0=no increase in muscle tone, 1=Slight increase in muscle tone manifested by a catch and release or by minimal resistance at the end of the range of motion when the part is moved, 1+=Slight increase in muscle tone manifested by a catch followed by minimal resistance throughout the remainder of the range of motion, 2=Marked increase in muscle tone through most of the range of motion but affected part easily moved, 3=Considerable increase in muscle tone passive movement difficult or 4=Affected part rigid in movement or extension.
