(Kessler Foundation) This is the first multi-site clinical trial of contralaterally controlled functional electrical stimulation, a new rehabilitation intervention for hand recovery following stroke developed by Knutson et al. Electrical stimulation is applied to the weak hand through surface electrodes, causing the weak hand to open. The patient controls the stimulation through a glove with sensors on the unaffected hand. Opening their unaffected hand provide stimulation that opens their weak hand, and enables them to practice using their hand in therapy.
