RESTORE: WeaRablEs for Stroke FuncTiOn in the NatuRal Environment
One of the most frequent consequences of a stroke is arm and hand motor impairment. In fact, more than 60% of stroke survivors have motor impairments on one side of the body, which may limit participation in everyday activities and quality of life. To date, only few studies look at what influences motor recovery, apart from capacity.
This study aims to better understand what influences how stroke survivors choose to use the more affected arm and hand in everyday activities, such as confidence in using the arm or positive social interactions.

About This Study
This study involves a new way to measure arm and hand use during everyday activities at home and in the community. Arm and hand behavior will be monitored from activity monitors (i.e. sensors) wore at the wrists with daily surveys delivered on your smartphone. This study will help us better understand how stroke survivors choose to use their more affected arm and hand or not to do daily activities.
