Innovations in Stroke Neurorehabilitation

Services for rehabilitation following stroke are experiencing a profound regression, necessitating the interface of new technologies, knowledge of plasticity within the nervous system, and cost-effective treatments as they are gradually being directed toward home-based environments. Dr. Wolf's presentation will explore some of the discoveries governing mixed reality as a vehicle to foster improvement in upper extremity function following stroke while exploiting principles underlying neuroplasticity. The observations contained within this presentation may offer a preview into the opportunities and responsibilities of bringing rehabilitation following catastrophic injury, such as stroke, into the home environment.
