Normally, nerve fibers carry electrical impulses through the spinal cord, providing communication between the brain and the arms and legs. In people with spinal cord injury, some fibers may be destroyed at the site of injury, while others remain connected but do not work correctly to carry electrical impulses. As a result, subjects with an incomplete spinal cord injury may have spasticity which is muscle spasms or muscle stiffness that makes movement ... Read More

The AMES device is designed to produce functional cortical changes by:(1) assisting the subject as he/she attempts to move the limb (assisted movement) and (2) enhancing movement sensation by vibrating the muscles during movement (enhanced sensation). The primary hypothesis is that the combination of assisted movement and enhanced sensation from muscle vibration can increase the amount of motor recovery in individuals disabled by a stroke.

The amount of activity completed by individuals within rehabilitation programs, even when units are well staffed, is often far below that required for optimal stroke rehabilitation, and is not individually adapted on a day-to-day basis. Daily feedback on their activity levels may motivate stroke survivors to engage in greater skills practice and thus outcome after stroke. To date only a few trials suggests that augmented feedback may be effective. There is a ... Read More

Stroke is the most serious disabling condition in the United States and the developed world. Novel stroke rehabilitation approaches, such as task-specific training, have shown promise in improving an individual's recovery in the rehabilitation setting; however, evidence suggests that these improvements are not generalized or transferred to the home, community, or work settings. Thus, these interventions usually do not impact overall health and participation ... Read More
