Comparison of present training effects with other existing upper extremity
interventions in chronic stroke such as constraint-induced movement therapy is difficult, due to the use of different outcome measures and inclusion of participants with different characteristics.
Paul Brand whose influence made her a strong proponent for a biomechanical approach to the remodeling of soft tissue and correction of the hand and upper extremity
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the upper extremity
is diagnosed when a clot is visualized in the subclavian, axillary, or brachial vein.
* After the 4 weeks of functional rehabilitation in the hospital the subject's upper extremity
motor function improved with 3%.
It should be emphasized that in high probability cases, a negative ultrasound, POCUS or consultative, should not be used to completely exclude upper extremity
, specifically central DVT.
The purpose of our study was to determine the return to duty rate at one-year postinjury for service members who sustained upper extremity
amputations and remain on active duty, and to determine if there are specific characteristics associated with higher retention rates.

Recovery of function in the hemiparetic upper extremity
is noted in fewer than 15% of patients after stroke .
Both subjects and physicians consistently report that improvements in upper extremity
motor function are the most desirable functional improvement target in the quadriplegic population, since even relatively modest changes can potentially have a significant impact on functional independence, quality of life and cost of care.
In this situation the operator's hand must reach the fetal wrist and distal forearm, grasp these structures, and pull hard across the trunk to free the pinned upper extremity
. The fetal wrist and distal forearm can be securely grasped using techniques pictured in the figure on page 13.
The Extreme 3D Pro Joystick is a gaming joystick designed for individuals with upper extremity
