Abstract

Chae J, Fang Z-P, Walker M, Purmehdi S: Intramuscular electromyographically controlled neuromuscular electrical stimulation for upper limb recovery in chronic hemiplegia. Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2001;80:935–941.

We report three cases of survivors of chronic stroke who were treated with active repetitive movement training of the paretic finger extensors mediated by intramuscular electromyographically controlled neuromuscular electrical stimulation for the purpose of motor relearning. These case reports demonstrate the feasibility of using intramuscular electromyographically controlled neuromuscular electrical stimulation for facilitating the upper limb motor recovery of chronic stroke survivors with mild to moderate hemiplegia.
