Want to participate in research?

Do you have arm and hand weakness after stroke?

The SMaHRT study is now enrolling participants to understand the behavioral, neuroanatomic, and neurophysiologic underpinnings of motor recovery toward developing personalized strategies and neurotechnologies to facilitate neurorehabilitation and enable better recovery for people with stroke.

You may be eligible if you:

  • Had a stroke less than 3 years ago
  • Are experiencing arm and/or hand weakness as a result of your stroke

What does it involve?

Participants will be enrolled in the SMaHRT study and will have research visits spanning the post-stroke care continuum. The study will collect demographics and clinical outcome measures, clinical neuroimages, video and robot-kinematic data, and neurophysiology data through TMS and EEG in order to quantify the course of motor recovery. The research visits may be accompanied by a comprehensive clinical visit to the Massachusetts General Hospital Neurorecovery Clinic.
