Project Summary

We combine sensors with fun, interactive computer games in order to strengthen arm muscles after stroke or SCI. Our sensors record electromyography (EMG) signals, which measure muscle contractions; these contractions are used to give “biofeedback” during the games. This “biofeedback” is intended to improve arm mobility and increase muscle activation and control over time.

This is a FREE program offered by the Perez Lab Team in the Arms and Hands Lab at Shirley Ryan! We’d love to have you join us. Please reach out to Daniel Fox (dfox@sralab.org) with any questions, or to schedule your visit!
