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
The MusicGlove is a glove that detects different grip types. Subjects play a musical game by completing different grips.
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.
Other: Conventional hand exercise
Conventional hand exercise consists of passive and active range of motion exercise, and simple coordination exercises with the fingers
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
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
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.
Other: Conventional Arm Exercise
Conventional arm exercise consists of passive and active range of motion exercise, and simple weight bearing exercises
- Motor and Strength Outcome Measure Using Box and Block Test [ Time Frame: From baseline to 1 month post therapy ]The primary end point was the change in Box and Blocks score, which measures how many blocks a subject can pick up and place in a box in 60 secons, from baseline to 1 month posttherapy. The higher the scores, the better arm and hand function indicated.
- Motor and Strength Outcome Measure Using Fugl-Meyer Score [ Time Frame: From baseline to 1 month post therapy ]The primary outcome measure was the change in Upper Extremity FM score on a scale of 0 to 66 at one month post therapy. The higher the scores, the better arm and hand function indicated.
- Range of Motion of Shoulder Joint [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
