Stroke recovery can vary significantly, with many patients struggling with everyday tasks due to long-term restricted limb use. Our research could be the difference between someone regaining full use of a limb or not though. Through development of our real-time motion-tracking technology, used alongside a tailored rehabilitation programme, therapists will be able to review progress in detail with patients, and provide full consultation on any recommended therapy adjustments.
