Home-based hand rehabilitation after chronic stroke: Randomized, controlled single-blind trial comparing the MusicGlove with a conventional exercise program

Daniel K. Zondervan, PhD, et al.

This study provides evidence that the Music- Glove, a music-based hand therapy device, is feasible and effective for providing rehabilitation at home. Participants that used the MusicGlove for 3 wk had significantly greater improvements in self-reported functional use of the impaired hand than those who performed conventional home therapy. Further, participants significantly increased the number of exercise repetitions they performed with the MusicGlove over time, showing that they became increasingly engaged as therapy progressed. The findings of this study will benefit Veterans with hand impairment after stroke. MusicGlove therapy could benefit individuals after spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury as well.
