To determine factors characterizing the differences in fine motor performance between stroke patients and controls. Twenty-two people with slight paresis in an early chronic phase following stroke and twenty-two healthy controls were examined. Three other aspects of force control included 4 visuomotor tracking 5 fast force changes and 6 grip strength. Based on 9 parameters which significantly distinguished fine motor performance in the two groups, we identified three principal components factors: JTT is a reliable and easily available assessment tool for assessing the hand function of PD subjects.

PD subjects took a longer time to complete the JTT, suggesting that they have deficits in gross and fine functional dexterity. Published by Elsevier Inc. Total scores for male and female children were not significantly different. Five-year-old taylot were significantly different to all other age groups and were excluded from further analysis. Test-retest reliability for total scores on the dominant and nondominant hands were ICC 0.

The Smallest Real Difference was 5. Reliability, validity and description of timed performance of the Jebsen-Taylor Test in patients with muscular dystrophies. The Jebsen-Taylor Test evaluates upper limb function by measuring timed performance on everyday activities. The test is used to assess and monitor hanf progression of patients with Parkinson disease, cerebral palsy, stroke and brain injury.

To analyze the reliability, internal consistency and validity of the Jebsen-Taylor Test in people with Muscular Dystrophy and to describe and classify upper limb timed performance of people with Muscular Dystrophy. Fifty patients with Muscular Dystrophy were assessed. Non-dominant and dominant upper limb performances on the Jebsen-Taylor Haylor were filmed.

Two raters evaluated timed performance for inter-rater reliability analysis. Test-retest reliability was investigated by using intraclass correlation coefficients. Internal consistency was assessed using the Cronbach alpha. A very high inter-rater reliability 0. The Jebsen-Taylor Test is a reliable and valid measure of timed performance for people with Muscular Dystrophy. Publicado por Elsevier Editora Ltda. The aim of the study was to demonstrate the feasibility, tolerability, and effectiveness of robotic-assisted arm training in incomplete chronic tetraplegia.

Ten individuals with chronic cervical spinal cord injury were enrolled. Participants performed single band exercise of upper limbs at an intensity of 3-hr per session for 3 times a week for 4 wks with MAHI Exo-II. Arm and hand function tests Jebsen-Taylor Hand Function Test, Action Research Arm Teststrength of jebseb limb upper limb motor score, grip, and pinch strengthand independence in daily living activities Spinal Cord Independence Measure II were performed at baseline, end of training, and 6 mos later.

After 12 sessions of training, improvements in arm and hand functions were observed. Jebsen-Taylor Hand Function Test 0. Some gains were maintained at 6 mos. Results from this pilot study suggest that repetitive training of arm movements with MAHI Exo-II exoskeleton is safe and has potential to be an adjunct treatment modality in rehabilitation of persons with spinal cord injury with mild to moderate impaired arm functions.

The Effect of Lesion Side.

Fest aim of this study was to examine the effect of the side of brain lesion on the ipsilesional hand function of stroke survivors. Only the ipsilesional hand of the stroke survivors and both hands left and right of the controls were assessed.

Individuals after a brain injury have the capacity to produce maximum strength preserved when using their ipsilesional hand. However, the dexterity of their hands and digits is affected, in particular for stroke individuals with right brain lesion. Predicting hand function in hxnd adults: Hand function is critical for independence in activities of daily living for older adults. The purpose of this study was to examine how grip strength, arm curl strength, and manual dexterous coordination contributed to time-based versus self-report assessment of hand function in community-dwelling older adults.


Purdue Pegboard Test, Jamar hand dynamometer, second arm curl test, Jebsen-Taylor Hand Function Test, and the Late-Life Function and Disability Instrument were administered to taylpr manual dexterous coordination, grip strength, arm curl strength, time-based hand functionand self-report of hand functionhnad. The relationship between grip hhand and hand function may be test-specific. Grip strength becomes a significant factor when the test requires grip strength to successfully taglor the test tasks.

Arm curl strength independently contributed to hand function in both time-based and self-report assessments, indicating that strength of extrinsic muscles of the hand are essential for hand function.

A retrospective outcomes study examining the effect of interactive metronome on hand function. Interactive Metronome IM, The Interactive Metronome Company, Sunrise, Florida, USA is a computer-based modality marketed to rehabilitation professionals who want to improve outcomes in areas of coordination, motor skills, self-regulation behaviors, and cognitive skills.

This retrospective study examined the efficacy of IM training on improving timing skills, hand functionand parental report of self-regulatory behaviors. Forty eight children with mixed motor and cognitive diagnoses completed an average of 14 one-hour training sessions over an average of 8.

All three measures improved with statistical yaylor despite participants having no direct skill training.

These results suggest an intimate relationship between cognition and motor fujction that has potential therapeutic value. Level 4, Retrospective Case Series. This study compared the hand function of children between the ages of 8 and 12 years with type 1 diabetes mellitus T1DM with that of children without diabetes.

The Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory 4. Duration of writing was found to be significantly longer on the dominant side of the T1DM group compared with the children without T1DM. The durations of card turning, moving large, light objects, and large, heavy objects on the nondominant side of the T1DM group were also found to be significantly longer than those in the children without T1DM.

The total scale score of health-related quality of life was significantly lower in the T1DM group compared with the children without T1DM. T1DM affects hand functionparticularly the dominant side for writing and nondominant side for card turning and moving large objects. Routine sensory assessments in neonatal brachial plexus palsy are infrequently performed because it is generally assumed that sensory recovery exceeds motor recovery.

However, studies examining sensory function in neonatal brachial plexus palsy have produced equivocal findings. The purpose of this study was to examine hand sensorimotor function in older children with neonatal brachial plexus palsy using standard clinical and research-based measures of tactile sensibility.

Seventeen children with neonatal brachial plexus palsy mean age: Tactile spatial perception involving the discrimination of pin patterns and movement-enhanced object recognition stereognosis were also assessed. In the neonatal brachial plexus palsy group, significant deficits in the affected hand motor function were observed compared with the unaffected hand. Median monofilament scores were considered normal for both hands. In contrast, tactile spatial perception was impaired in the neonatal brachial plexus palsy group.

This impairment was seen as deficits in both pin pattern and object recognition accuracy as well as the amount of time required to identify patterns and objects. As a sequential, programmed movement of fingers, keyboard playing is a promising technique for inducing execution and a high level of coordination during finger movements.

Also, keyboard playing can be physically and emotionally rewarding for adolescents in rehabilitation settings and thereby motivate continued involvement in treatment.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of keyboard playing using Musical Instrument Digital Interface MIDI on finger movement for adolescents with brain damage. Results showed increased velocity of all fingers on the MIDI-based test, tayloor statistical significance was found in the velocity of F2 index fingerF3 middle fingerand F5 little finger between pre- and post-training tests.

Correlation analysis between the pressing force of the finger and hand function tests showed a strong positive correlation between the measure of grip power and the pressing force of F2 and F5 on the Grip and Pinch Strength Test. The results support using keyboard playing for hand rehabilitation, talyor in the pressing force of individual finger sequential movements. Further investigation is needed to define the feasibility of the MIDI program for valid hand rehabilitation for people with brain damage.


Validity of semi-quantitative scale for brain MRI in unilateral cerebral palsy due to periventricular white matter lesions: Relationship with hand sensorimotor function and structural connectivity. To provide first evidence of construct validity of a semi-quantitative scale for brain structural MRI sqMRI scale in children with unilateral cerebral palsy UCP secondary to periventricular white matter PWM lesions, by examining the relationship with hand sensorimotor function and whole brain structural connectivity.

Lobar and hemispheric scores on the sqMRI scale contralateral to the clinical side of hemiplegia correlated with sensorimotor paretic hand function measures and FA of a number of brain structural connections, including connections of brain areas involved in motor control postcentral, precentral and paracentral gyri in the parietal jeebsen.

More severe lesions funcfion with lower sensorimotor performance, with the posterior limb of internal capsule score being the strongest contributor to impaired hand function. The sqMRI scale demonstrates first evidence of construct validity against impaired motor and sensory function measures and brain structural connectivity in a cohort of children with UCP due to PWM lesions.

More severe lesions correlated with poorer paretic hand sensorimotor function and impaired structural connectivity in the hemisphere contralateral to the clinical side of hemiplegia. The quantitative structural MRI scoring may be a useful clinical tool for studying brain structure- function relationships but requires further validation in other populations of CP.

Immediate effects of somatosensory stimulation on hand function in patients with poststroke hemiparesis: This study aimed to determine the immediate effects of somatosensory stimulation on hand tylor in patients with poststroke hemiparesis.

Eleven patients with poststroke hemiparesis participated in this study. Four types no stimulation, vibration, and light and rough touches of somatosensory stimulation were performed randomly for 4 days applying only one type of somatosensory stimulation each day. The JTHFT score was significantly higher for vibration than that for rough touch P hand function of patients with poststroke hemiparesis, with more favorable effects observed in vibration stimulation.

Improvements in hand function in adults with chronic tetraplegia following a multi-day 10Hz rTMS intervention combined with repetitive task practice. Background and Purpose Evidence suggests the use of stimulation to increase corticomotor excitability improves hand function in persons with cervical spinal cord injury SCI. We assessed effects of multi-day application of 10Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation rTMS applied to the corticomotor hand area combined with repetitive task practice RTP in participants with tetraplegia and neurologically healthy participants.

We assessed significance using paired t-tests on pre-post differences and effect sizes using standardized response mean SRM. Effect sizes for all other measures were small and there were no statistical between-condition ejbsen in the outcomes assessed. Higher stimulation dose frequency, intensity, number of sessions may be associated with larger effects. Custom-made silicone tesy prosthesis: Up to now, a cosmetic glove was the most common method for managing transmetacarpal TMC and funcyion CMC amputations, but it is devoid of markings and body color.

At this amputation level, it is very difficult to fit a functional prosthesis because of the short available length, unsightly shape, grafted skin, contracture and lack of functional prosthetic options.

A year-old male came to our clinic with amputation at the 1st to 4th carpometacarpal level and a 5th metacarpal that was projected laterally and fused with the carpal bone. The stump had grafted skin, redness, and an unhealed suture line. He complained of pain projected over the metacarpal and suture area. The clinical team members decided to fabricate testt custom-made silicone hand prosthesis to accommodate the stump, protect the grafted skin, improve the hand ‘s appearance and provide some passive function.

The custom silicone hand prosthesis was fabricated with modified flexible wires to provide passive interphalangeal movement.
