Study Description
Brief Summary:
Using the upper extremity rehabilitation program developed by virtual reality would help the recovery upper extremity function in patients with stroke.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Upper Extremity Dysfunction After the Stroke Other: Virtual reality program for upper extremity rehabilitation Other: standard occupational therapy

Detailed Description:
This randomized, double-blind, controlled trial included 24 patients with ischemic stroke. The intervention group received 30 min of conventional occupational therapy (OT) and 30 min of the mobile upper extremity rehabilitation program using a smartphone and a tablet PC (MoU-Rehab). The controls (n = 12) received conventional OT alone for 1 h per day. Rehabilitation consisted of 10 sessions of therapy, 5 days per week, for 2 weeks. The outcome measures (Fugl−Meyer Assessment of the upper extremity [FMA-UE], Brunnstr¨om stage [B-stage] for the arm and the hand, manual muscle testing [MMT], modified Barthel index [MBI], EuroQol-5 Dimension [EQ-5D], and Beck Depression Inventory [BDI]) were assessed at the beginning and end of treatment, and at 1 month. User satisfaction was evaluated by a qestionnaire.

    for motor evaluation


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. brunnström stage [ Time Frame: baseline(just before beginning the treatment), at the end of the treatment for 2 weeks, 1 month later of the end of the treatment for 2 weeks ]
    for motor evaluation

  2. Modified Barthel Index [ Time Frame: baseline(just before beginning the treatment), at the end of the treatment for 2 weeks, 1 month later of the end of the treatment for 2 weeks ]
    for ADL independence

  3. Medical Research Council (MRC) Scale for Muscle Strength [ Time Frame: baseline(just before beginning the treatment), at the end of the treatment for 2 weeks, 1 month later of the end of the treatment for 2 weeks ]
    for motor evaluation

  4. Euroqol(EQ)-5D [ Time Frame: baseline(just before beginning the treatment), at the end of the treatment for 2 weeks, 1 month later of the end of the treatment for 2 weeks ]
    EQ-5D

  5. Virtual reality kinematic data [ Time Frame: everytime when the patient uses program (automatically all recorded) ]
    Automatically recorded

  6. questionnaire [ Time Frame: at the end of the treatment for 2 weeks ]
    for user satisfaction
