Navigated brain stimulation to improve arm and hand use after stroke


At the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago a recent study examined the effectiveness of using Navigated Brain Stimulation combined with upper limb rehabilitation to improve arm and hand use after stroke. Navigated Brain Stimulation is a form of non-invasive brain stimulation, and when used repetitively (one stimulation per second) over the non-injured side of the brain, it has been shown to reduce the excessive inhibitory drive that the non-injured side of the brain delivers to the injured side. Using new technology from Nexstim, the trial signalled a potential breakthrough in the treatment of stroke related injury, as well as benefitting many of those who received Navigated Brain Stimulation.
