Do you have arm and hand weakness after stroke?

The PROMOTE study is now enrolling participants to use a new home rehabilitation system (the Axem Home) for arm and hand rehabilitation after stroke.

You may be eligible if you:

  • Had a stroke 6 months up until 5 years ago
  • Are experiencing arm and/or hand weakness as a result of your stroke
  • Do not have any scalp wounds
  • Do not have a vision impairment that affects your ability to use a computer or tablet

What does it involve?

You will be asked to wear a headband that uses a safe and non-invasive form of light technology to measure brain activity (fNIRS) while performing a tablet based independent arm and hand exercise program 4 times a week and participate in telerehabilitation sessions with an Occupational Therapist 2 times a week for 5 weeks.
You will also be asked to attend three in-person visits (approximately 3 hours each visit) at the Massachusetts General Hospital main campus.
