Function of the Upper Member in Stroke
Keywords:kinetoterapy exercise, stroke, upper limb function, kinetotherapy
AbstractModern physical therapy is based on the idea that function governs the organ. This aspect can explain why the main activity of the hand is gripping and grasping and the main function of the foot is walking. The upper limbs use the movement in an open kinematic chain and have a very large representation at the central level, while the lower limbs work in a closed kinematic chain. We continue to face limitations in the recovery and interdisciplinary recovery of upper limb function in stroke, even though we currently have sufficient scientific evidence and therapeutic ways to stimulate healing. The research aims to identify whether a person suffering from an ischemic stroke can change the function of the affected upper limb three months after the accident by starting or continuing the recovery program until the patient leaves the acute phase.
