In the short time I have been at The Ohio State University I have learned a lot about stroke. Under the mentorship of Dr. Stephen Page, I have collaborated on a variety of projects intended to increase the functional abilities of individuals following stroke. One such collaboration has resulted in the recent publication of the article you seen referenced above. In short, individuals with stroke demonstrated increased motor skill and functional ability following repetitive task-specific practice using an electrical stimulation neuroprosthesis. Notably, these gains were retained 3 months later. To our knowledge, this is the first study describing the longer term effects of repetitive task-specific training using an electrical stimulation neuroprosthesis in stroke. You'll be able to access the article through your institutional library!

Occupational therapists prevent illness, remediate disability, and restore health by enabling participation in meaningful occupations (activities of daily living, work, & leisure).
This blog contains examples of how I participate in the profession of occupational therapy.
