Upper limb activity monitoring in the rehabilitation of human SCI
Functional recovery following SCI in adults is limited. Improvements in the quality of life of affected persons are associated with the recovery of functions that allow independent living, for example use of the arms and hands. Rehabilitative training has been shown to aid upper limb recovery however, there are likely vast differences in the amount of time individuals spend actively training (during rehab sessions in the clinic) and what they do in their non-training time (during daily life).
Performance of functional arm and leg movements depends on neural coupling
