Summary

Research shows that exercising at home can improve arm and hand movement after a stroke. Unfortunately, it can be hard to exercise enough to make a difference in arm and hand movement after stroke. In this study, we will try to determine things that make it easy or hard for Veterans to exercise their arm and hand after a stroke. In this study, we will recruit Veteran stroke survivors who have difficulty using their arm and hand after a stroke. First, we will administer surveys and questionnaires to get Veteran stroke survivors' perspectives on their self-confidence, mood, sleep, and more. Then, we will ask them to track their home exercise using a wearable movement tracker (like a smart watch). Then, Veteran stroke survivors will meet with a researcher to talk about their experience doing home exercise and why they think it was easy or hard to do.

Summary

Research shows that exercising at home can improve arm and hand movement after a stroke. Unfortunately, it can be hard to exercise enough to make a difference in arm and hand movement after stroke. In this study, we will try to determine things that make it easy or hard to exercise the arm and hand after a stroke. In this study, we will recruit stroke survivors who are in therapy for arm and hand rehabilitation. First, we will administer surveys and questionnaires to get stroke survivors' perspectives on their self-confidence, mood, sleep, and more. Then, we will ask them to track their baseline upper extremity activity for approximately 3 days and their home exercise for approximately 7 days using a wearable movement tracker (like a smart watch). Then, stroke survivors will meet with a researcher to talk about their experience doing home exercise and why they think it was easy or hard to do.
