Purpose. The purpose of the study is to assess the effects of dynamic taping (DT) using a smart neurological robot Fourier M2 in patients after cerebral stroke with hemiparesis.
Materials and methods. The study included 28 patients (10 women and 17 men, average age: 63, 48) after ischemic cerebral stroke with hemiparesis (14 left-sided, 13 right-sided) who expressed their informed consent for participation in the study. The patients were divided into groups using the ALEA software, with its own randomization algorithm, into group TG and CG – 14 participants in each. In order to conduct the study, there was used the Fourier M2 smart rehabilitation robot designed for diagnostics and therapy of upper limbs.
Results and conclusions. The study demonstrated statistically relevant effects on the 1st, 3rd and 4th day of the study in the form of a percentage improvement in active movement in the TG group as a result of application of dynamic taping.
The assessment of the remaining study results demonstrated both the effects of dynamic taping and the effects of the therapy with the use of a neurological robot in patients after cerebral stroke with hemiparesis. The assessment of those effects showed the therapy effects were comparable in both groups.
The Fourier M2 smart robot is s useful and objective tool for diagnostics, therapy and assessment of the effects of physical therapy in patients after cerebral stroke with upper limb dysfunction.
