Brief Summary:
ArmAssist is low cost simply robotic devise for arm training and assessment. It is suitable for extended home rehabilitation and prolonged hospital rehabilitation without therapist supervision. The device contains several games which are structured as exercise for disabled patients. The primary aim of this study is to correlate efficacy of the arm training with ArmAssist robot system to conventional care modified by duration and structure of exercise. The secondary aim of this study is to measure the correlation between standard clinical assessment scales and ArmAssist-based assessment metrics.
