Proprioception Assessment at TTSH Rehabilitation Centre

In this collaborative project between Tan Tock Seng Rehabilitation Centre and NTU, a team of bioengineers and rehabilitation professionals will study the diagnostic potential of the WristBot especially for testing proprioceptive deficits across the evolution of the recovery process. The main goal is providing clinicians with a novel tool able to accurately quantify the sensory deficits and correlated them with the motor recovery process and clinical scales.

We aim to study the clinical feasibility of WristBot to quantify sensory and proprioceptive threshold in a large sample of acute or subacute strokes with arm motor impairments during inpatient rehabilitation; and to determine any correlations with standardized motor, sensory and functional outcomes pre/post inpatient rehabilitation programme and at 1-month post discharge. In a controlled inpatient setting and under strict supervision by trained occupational therapists, systematic measurements of proprioceptive acuity will be carried out in ~50 suitable subjects.
