Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is conducting a study investigating the use of small wearable devices, called myoelectric computer interfaces, to reduce abnormal arm muscle coordination in individuals with impaired arm movement from a stroke. Training (in the form of computer games using the device) will take place predominantly at home, with some sessions in the lab as well. This study could potentially lead to improved arm function for those with arm impairments from co‐activation.
Who Can Participate
• Had a stroke more than 6 months ago
• No large impairment in vision (with glasses), memory, language or
• Not currently participating in another study on the affected arm
Age Range At least 18 years old
