1. Upper extremity disability after stroke. Psychometric properties of outcome measures and perceived ability to perform daily hand activities
Sammanfattning : Disability of the upper extremity is common after stroke. To be able to evaluate recovery and effects of interventions there is a need for stable and precise outcome measures. In order to design and target efficient rehabilitation interventions it is important to know which factors that affect the ability to perform daily hand activities. LÄS MER
2. Constraint Induced Movement Therapy : influence of restraint and type of training on performance and on brain plasticity
Sammanfattning : Partial paralysis of the hand is one of the main impairments after stroke. Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIT) is a new treatment technique that appears to improve upper extremity function after stroke. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Robotic manipulators today are mostly constrained to perform fixed, repetitive tasks. Engineers design the robot’s workcell specifically tailoredto the task, minimizing all possible uncertainties such as the location of tools and parts that the robot manipulates. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In-hand manipulation is an action that allows for changing the grasp on an object without the need for releasing it. This action is an important component in the manipulation process and helps solving many tasks. Human hands are dexterous instruments suitable for moving an object inside the hand. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Humans have unique abilities to perform certain types of skilled voluntary movements. In this thesis we examine the neural substrates of. (i) fine digit actions, in particular the control of fingertip forces during manipulation, and (ii) the coordination of voluntary movements of different limbs. LÄS MER
