Abstract

The hand training of the person of cerebral apoplexy is one of the worldwide important problems. In recent years, it is known that the recovery of the exercise function and sensory function has become possible by the brain plasticity. We aim at reviving an exercise and sensory functions. We have developed a complex rehabilitation device system to solve these problems. The conventional training of the hand put an important point only on the exercise function. We give a mechanical stimulation directly to tactile senses and visual feedback. In this paper, we report an evaluation result when using complex rehabilitation device.
