Abstract

Objective.The clinical assessment of upper limb hemiparesis in acute stroke involves repeated manual examination of hand movements during instructed tasks. This process is labour-intensive and prone to human error as well as being strenuous for the patient. Wearable motion sensors can automate the process by measuring characteristics of hand activity. Existing work in this direction either uses multiple sensors or complex instructed movements, or analyzes only thequantityof upper limb motion. These methods are obtrusive and strenuous for acute stroke patients and are also sensitive to noise. In this work, we propose to use only two wrist-worn accelerometer sensors to study thequalityof compl..
