 A pilot study was conducted about the effects of task-specific training (TST) on upper extremity dysfunction in patients who suffered from chronic strokes. Based on results from the Fugl-Meyer Assessment, STEF and Motor Activity Log, patients' conditions significantly improved after the intervention. TST may improve upper-extremity function, including the use of paralyzed hands of persons who suffered from chronic strokes.
