 We treated severe arm paresis in a chronic stroke patient who underwent regenerative therapy five months ago, using the task-oriented training combined with orthosis and electrical stimulation therapy for 22 weeks (1 hour a day, 3 times a week). Consequently, the patient's Fugl-Meyer Assessment scores and the Amount of Use scores in the Motor Activity Log improved more than those in previous studies. Previous studies showed that the efficacy of regenerative medicine for paretic arms in a chronic stroke patient lasts for about 3 months post intervention. Therefore, this case study shows that multiple interventions might improve arm function.
