Enhancing self-directed upper-limb (UL) exercise practice using GripAble gaming device and Lycra arm sleeve in people with stroke (PwS): An evaluative study (2023)
Presentation / Conference
Pearce, A., Ruiz Garate, V., Welsby, J., Caleb-Solly, P., & Kumar, P. (2023, December). Enhancing self-directed upper-limb (UL) exercise practice using GripAble gaming device and Lycra arm sleeve in people with stroke (PwS): An evaluative study. Poster presented at UK Stroke Forum, Birmingham

Background: The national clinical guidelines recommend repetitive task training to enhance UL rehabilitation in PwS. GripAble™ (a self-directed exergaming device) has shown to increase repetitive practice in PwS. Previous studies have shown that a Ly...

Journal Article
Kumar, P., Brodie, S., Molton, J., O'Reilly, R., Steele, J., Pearce, A., …Caleb-Solly, P. (2023). Accelerometers-embedded Lycra sleeves to test wear compliance and upper limb activity in people with stroke: A feasibility study. Journal of Prosthetics and Orthotics, 35(2), 122-128. https://doi.org/10.1097/JPO.0000000000000406

Introduction To establish a possible effect of Lycra sleeves, accurate recording of wear time is critical. The aim of this study was to test whether an accelerometer-embedded Lycra sleeve can measure wear compliance and record upper-limb (UL) movemen...
