  • VIS Video: Mirror Therapy in a stroke patient

    I work in a neurological rehabilitation clinic.
    We do a lot of mirror therapy, but this is the fastest improvement in hand function I have ever seen.
    Thankfully I always have a camera at hand.:teeth:
    Enjoy:

    That looks great Matthias!
    Any outcome studies planned?

      Thanks for posting this Matthias, it's good to see the improvement in the face as well :thumbs_up.

        I would love to do studies like that.
        But our clinic has different goals (whatever they may be).:teeth:
        But Professor Platz at the University of Greifswald has a project where he is working on Mirror Therapy, sensory stimulation, impairment oriented training and brain stimulation.
        They are doing studies on different combinations of those treatments to see which works best.

            That has resolved completely.
            Maybe some smudging of the hand and mouth part in the somatosensory cortex?

              Small children and stroke patients will often have involuntary movement of the face when they are engaged in a physical or cognitive activity that pushes their boundaries. It was interesting to see the progress of your patient in that his face moved less as he recovered and his facial muscles appeared to regain resting tone.
