We participated in a study on patient rehabilitation after a stroke. The authors were Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague and General University Hospital in Prague. The aim of the study were patients with hindered locomotion of the upper arm.
The study compares activity of affected and unaffected arm based on three different criteria.
The goal of the study was to compare affected and unaffected arm. We used three sensors to record activities of one patient. Two in the form of an armband and one attached to a belt. The system we developed is able to determine whether a detected activity is a result of a movement of an arm or of the whole body (like walking or driving).
