Abstract

In this study, the Assisted Rehabilitation and Measurement (ARM) Guide was used to identify areas of the workspace that could not be accessed by three brain-injured patients. Furthermore, the Guide was used to evaluate therapeutic effects of prolonged stretch along the guide on workspace deficits for one subject. The results suggest that sensitive measurement of workspace boundaries is possible. Further, the results also indicate that prolonged stretch improved the workspace by reducing involuntary restraint forces.
