This research uses technology to help clinicians and researchers better understand the recovery of quality movement after stroke, how best to measure it and how it relates to the use of arm after stroke. 

Participants will be asked to perform a few common clinical tests while wearing reflective markers and movement sensors. Motion sensing cameras capture movement patterns of healthy adults to compare to movement patterns of people recovering from stroke.

Participants will be required to attend two 60 minute testing sessions, 1-3 days apart. 


Inclusion criteria:

  • Adults aged over 18 years of age
  • The study requires both people who have and haven't experienced stroke
  • Ability to give informed consent 

Exclusion criteria: 

  • An unstable medical condition
  • Pain in either arm
  • Other neurological or systemic disorders which could adversely impact arm function or either upper limb (e.g Parkinson's disease, history of prior stroke and associated motor deficits.) 
  • Inability to follow 3-stage commands (e.g dementia, severe aphasia) 
  • Inability to attend face to face assessment sessions.
