Recent researches reported the presence of ultrasonographic (US) subclinical synovitis and tendon involvement in asymptomatic patients. We aimed to assess US patterns in SLE patients and determine their relationship with clinical assessment. Abstract Background Improving upper limb function is a core element of stroke rehabilitation needed to maximise patient outcomes and reduce disability. Evidence about effects of individual treatment techniques and modalities is synthesised within many reviews. For selection of effective rehabilitation treatment, the relative effectiveness of interventions must be known. Objective: To assess the relative responsiveness of 2 commonly used upper-extremity motor scales, the Action Research Arm Test (ARAT) and the Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA), in evaluating recovery of upper-extremity function after an acute stroke in patients undergoing inpatient rehabilitation. Design: Prospective. Setting: An acute stroke rehabilitation unit. We have developed a rehabilitation training system (UR-System-PARKO: Useful and Ultimate Rehabilitation System-PARKO) for patients after a stroke to promote recovery of motor function of the severe plegic hand with hemiplegia. A clinical test with six patients for the therapeutic effect of the UR-System-PARKO for severe plegic hand was performed. For all patients, the active ranges of motion.
