The Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA) is a stroke-specific, performance-based following stroke and integrates Brunnstrom’s stages of motor recovery (Gladstone et al.

Fugl-Meyer Assessment of sensorimotor function

The Internet Stroke Center. Rehabilitation Measures Database Wearable sensors such as smart watches or wrist bands providing positional information can also be applied to solve the occlusion problem in our system.

All subjects received detailed information about the study and provided written consent. When pushing the record button and ,eyer an item of Fugl-Meyer assessment, upper extremity skeleton of a subject can be shown in the monitor.

Scand J Rehabil Med ; 7: Brunnstrpm movement of the joint center was used for the Jerky motion analysis. Stroke is a leading cause of disabilities worldwide[ 1 ] and hemiplegia is the most common impairment after stroke, [ 2 ] resulting in upper extremity UE dysfunction. Traditional Brunnstrom recovery phase reveals the recovery of coordinated movement and emergence from synergistic movements.

Fugl-Meyer Assessment FMA scale is an index to assess the sensorimotor impairment in individuals who have had stroke.


tes A higher jerky score derived from this method indicates more jerky movement Fig 3. While waiting for a more advanced form of Kinect, another solution is fusion with other hand tracking sensor, such as the Leap Motion device Leap Motion, USAwhich allows precise hand tracking using a hand point cloud below the wrist.

Fugl-Meyer Assessment of Motor Recovery after Stroke – Physiopedia

Dimensionality reduction using principal component analysis PCA was performed to distinguish major features from all existing features. Please review our privacy policy. The saved data and FMA scores were transferred to an engineering department for analysis.

Some other FMA scores that could not be predicted in this research are required to detect the above hand information with accurate hand position tracking. Global and regional burden of stroke during — The recording program includes subjects’ abbreviation, recording arm side, assessment item number.

More and varied movement data of each assessment item would increase the precision of the FMA system score using Kinect. Further study to validate the usefulness of advanced system in the real home-setting is required. FMA scoring using Kinect has potential as valid assessment tool for motor function after stroke in the home-based rehabilitation setting.

An analysis of the precision and reliability of the leap motion sensor and its suitability for static and dynamic tracking. In this context, there have been efforts to reduce the FMA item; one study suggested reducing the items for UE evaluation to six.

The FMA scoring system using only one Kinect in this study does have some limitations. An identical Fest structure i. A method for evaluation of physical performance. A smooth curve movement like A has a lower jerky score value, whereas a high trembling curve like B has a higher jerky motion score. The maximum total score that can be obtained in Fugl Meyer assessment isthough it brunnnstrom common practice to assess all domains separately.

The recorded joint movement data from each FMA assessment were extracted. Log jerky score in the hemiplegic UE was 1. The individual in Fig 1 provided written informed consent as outlined in the PLOS consent form to publish the picture.

For the left arm, as an example, left hand, left wrist, left elbow, brunnstron shoulder, shoulder center and head joint position data were extracted.

Assessing upper extremity motor function in practice of virtual activities of daily living. This indicates that the number of items used in FMA using Kinect could feasibly be decreased, which would decrease the burden on patients and caregivers during assessment.

Development and validation of a short form of the Fugl-Meyer motor scale in patients with stroke. Outpatient rehabilitation among stroke survivors—21 States and the District of Columbia, Jerk t is an 18 dimensional vector because subject motion data has 18 variables ttest joint x three dimension.
