Abstract

Poststroke somatosensory impairment is prevalent, yet commonly used clinical measures lack the sensitivity needed to quantify impairment and detect change due to intervention. This selective review, prepared and presented as a part of the I-Treat Conference (June 22, 2013, Columbus, Ohio), discusses the prevalence of somatosensory impairment after stroke, highlights measures of higher level somatosensory processing, and briefly reviews sensorimotor rehabilitation. The goal of this article is to encourage dialogue regarding the development and use of measures of higher level somatosensory function that will enable personalization of sensorimotor rehabilitation.
