|Description:||The motor recovery procedure of chronic stroke during robot-assisted training has not been well studied previously. In this work, we analyzed the variations in the coactivating patterns of elbow and shoulder muscles (biceps, triceps lateral, anterior deltoid, and posterior deltoid) in hemiplegic persons with chronic stroke (n=4) during a 20-session's interactive robot-assisted treatment. Significant decreases in muscle cocontractions (P<0.05) for all muscle pairs started from the 8th session of the training. Improvements were also observed in motor scores of Fugl-Meyer and Modified Ashworth Scale after the treatment. The results suggested an increased dexterity and selective control on individual muscles for both elbow and shoulder joints in a designed task after the robot-assisted training.|
