CEU Course Description

Worldwide, stroke remains the leading cause of long-term motor disability among adults.  Virtual reality (VR) is an emerging therapy that holds promise for the rehabilitation of patients with chronic stroke conditions.  The goal of this CEU course is to explore whether non-immersive VR could be used to effectively improve fine motor function of the affected upper extremity in patients with chronic stroke.
