Abstract

A main focus of clinical interventions for adults after a stroke and children with hemiplegia is upper limb motor impairments. Robotic and motion capture technologies have been used to quantify the presence of abnormal joint coupling patterns in the arm and hand in adults who have had a stroke. Similar impairments have been observed clinically in children with hemiplegia, however, quantitative measurement tools tailored for this population are lacking. Here, we describe the integration of haptic robotics, pressure recording, and motion capture designed specifically for use with pediatric participants. Preliminary results demonstrate that these measurement techniques are effective in quantifying deficits in reaching abilities in this population.
