Project description


Although stroke is fallen from 3rd or 4th cause of death but outlook after survival is remains bleak. Recovery time is very different for each individual and it depends on severity of stroke. Weakness or paralysis of one side of the body, coordination and balance, fatigue, difficulty of sleeping, speech problems are all side effect of stroke, and all can get better with current rehabilitation methods but only 10% of the survival with recover almost completely with 25 percent recovering with minor impairments. Another 40 percent experience moderate to severe impairments that require special care.



We argue that sense of agency and ownership can be improved in stroke survivors using RHI, improving perception can be translated to improve in function Use of fMRI might be needed to provide baseline brain activity prior to participation and making an inference about the effectiveness of any intervention employed and pathways involved. But base on our results and literature review there is a fair amount of evidence that the sense of agency and/or ownership in healthy and clinical populations create a new pathway The aim is to improve hand function after stroke. The objective is through improving sense of agency and ownership and augmentation of these senses via FES Final stage depending on a result of the above, the human-human interface may be employed as a continuation of our work to foster voluntary control, where increasing voluntary control (agency) will be sensed by the processor and be associated with decreasing FES contribution.
