A Feasibility Study
The present study demonstrates the safety, feasibility, and favorable rating of intensive arm rehabilitation using a digital telehealth platform within the U.S. IRF setting, over and above usual rehabilitation care. The intervention was effectively transitioned from IRF to the home environment, where patients continued with high compliance and satisfaction. The dose of therapy when adding TR more than doubled what was provided by usual care.

A Feasibility Study
The results of this study support the hypothesis that it is feasible to use EMG-driven WH-ENMS to support the home-based self-help upper limb training of discharged participants with chronic stroke. After 20-session training, motor function improvements associated with improved clinical scores, EMG parameters, and kinematic parameters were observed in all of the participants.

Association Between Gains in Impairment and Function
Intensive arm motor therapy is associated with improved mRS in a substantial fraction (31.2%) of patients. Exploratory analysis suggests specific motor impairments that might underlie this finding and may be optimal targets for rehabilitation therapies that aim to reduce activities limitations.

A Randomized Controlled Trial
This study showed a beneficial effect of the home-based motor training telerehabilitation program on motor function in patients with stroke, which was accompanied by enhanced interhemispheric functional connectivity of the M1 areas. We inferred that it is feasible, safe, and efficacious for patients with stroke to receive professional rehabilitation training at home. The combined use of imaging biomarkers should be encouraged in motor training clinical studies in patients with stroke.

A Randomized Trial
The study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of using sEMG-B to increase the muscle activity of the extensor muscles of the hand and the dorsiflexor muscles of the foot in the hemiparetic limbs of elderly patients with brain damage resulting from a stroke. The present study’s data seem to indicate that sEMG-B is a suitable intervention to improve muscle strength, and, therefore, muscle functionality, in elderly patients with brain damage from a stroke

A Randomized Clinical Trial
Activity-based training produced substantial gains in arm motor function regardless of whether it was provided via home-based telerehabilitation or traditional in-clinic rehabilitation. The findings of this study suggest that telerehabilitation has the potential to substantially increase access to rehabilitation therapy on a large scale.
