Brief Summary:
The aim of this study to investigate the effect of combined bilateral tDCS and VR-based therapy on distal upper extremity training in patients with stroke. We hypothesized that experimental group (VR-based training with dual-tDCS) would improve distal upper extremity function rather than control group (VR-based training with dual sham tDCS).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Stroke Device: SMART Glove system with tDCS Device: SMART Glove system with sham-tDCS Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a double-blind, randomized controlled study. Patients were randomly assigned to 1 : 1 ratio to experimental group (VR-based training with dual-tDCS; VR-Dual) or the control group (VR-based training with dual sham tDCS; VR-Sham) . For both conditions, VR-Dual and VR-Sham group commenced at the same time (20 minutes). The therapist and patients were blinded as to whether the patients received real or sham tDCS. The study was approved by the Ethics Committee of the National Rehabilitation Center, Korea, and all participants provided written informed consent before enrollment.
