The purpose of this study is to explore the efficacy of the SaeboVR rehabilitation system for improving functional outcomes related to upper extremity motor recovery in stroke survivors.
The specific objectives are:
- To explore the participants' level of performance and satisfaction with their performance in self-identified problem areas of daily functioning following a 4-week intervention using the SaeboVR rehabilitation system.
- To evaluate the efficacy of an intervention protocol that emphasizes task-specific and goal-oriented virtual practice, reflecting the participants' self-identified goal priorities.

Use of the SaeboVR for task specific upper extremity training
Use of the SaeboVR rehabilitation system for approximately 1 hour, 3 times per week for 4 weeks. Each intervention session will consist of the participant engaging in a series of virtual occupations involving their affected upper extremity and will include a 5 minute warm up activity followed by 3, 15 minute sessions of virtual occupation practice separated by 2, 5 minute breaks. The virtual occupations will include: grocery shopping, grocery storage, breakfast preparation, pet shopping, pet feeding, pet bathing, garden planting, garden harvesting, dinner preparation, closet organizing, and soup kitchen volunteering.
- Canadian Occupational Performance Measure [ Time Frame: Change from baseline perception of occupational performance to 4 weeks ]The Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) is a valid and responsive measure of occupational performance and has been widely used in stroke research. The COPM uses a semi-structured interview format where performance and satisfaction scores will be identified for the participants' self-identified occupational performance issues.
- Fugl-Meyer Assessment-Upper Extremity (FMA-UE) [ Time Frame: Change from baseline upper extremity impairment to 4 weeks ]The Fugl-Meyer Assessment-Upper Extremity (FMA-UE) is a widely used measure of motor impairment post stroke and is comprised of 33 items related to upper extremity movement. The FMA-UE has excellent inter-rater and test-retest reliability as well as construct validity in persons with stroke.
- Arm Activity Measure [ Time Frame: Change from baseline upper extremity function to 4 weeks ]The Arm Activity Measure (ArmA) is a self-report tool designed for use with upper extremity spasticity management interventions. The ArmA was chosen because it provides a comprehensive assessment at the activity level of both active and passive upper extremity function; it is comprised of an 8 item passive function subscale and a 13 item active function subscale. Both subscales have been found to have high internal consistency and test-retest reliability.
