Clinical Trial

Improving Arm Movement Using Wearable Device After Stroke

IRB Protocol Number STU00203644


Slutzky Neuroprosthetics Lab


Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is evaluating a new rehab therapy using wearable devices and a video game interface to improve arm movement after stroke. Participants use these wearable devices, called myoelectric computer interfaces, to play video games using their arm muscles. This therapy may help reduce abnormal muscle coordination and potentially lead to improved arm function. Training in this therapy will take place primarily in the convenience of your home, with some sessions in the lab as well.

Who Can Participate

  • Had a stroke more than 6 months ago
  • No large impairment in vision (with glasses), memory, language or concentration
  • Not currently participating in another study on the affected arm



Age Range
