The Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA) is a stroke-specific, performance-based following stroke and integrates Brunnstrom’s stages of motor recovery (Gladstone et al. This method of assessment reduces the time required to perform the test.

This may be useful in the setting of unsupervised home-based brnunstrom. Outpatient rehabilitation among stroke survivors—21 States and the District of Columbia, The value includes movement times and distance. Conclusions The FMA scoring system using Kinect is valid and provides additional quantitative measures of motion smoothness in stroke patients.

When the motor scale is administered on its own, it takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

System for recording motion data with Kinect The Kinect depth-sensing camera was operated with a frame-rate of 30Hz and was positioned in front of each subject to track the entire arm during FMA motions. Original Editor – Sinead Greenan. The recording program includes subjects’ abbreviation, recording arm side, assessment item number.


Fugl-Meyer Assessment of sensorimotor function

As both normal side and hemiplegic side data were collected for each subject, 82 motion data captures in total were used to train the ANN model. Forty-one patients with hemiplegic stroke were enrolled. The saved data and FMA scores were transferred to an engineering department for analysis. S1 File Data file used for analysis.

Movement Therapy in Hemiplegia: It takes approximately minutes to administer the total FMA. Supporting Information S1 Appendix Data clipping. The primary objectives of this study were to investigate whether Kinect motion data could be used to predict FMA score and whether predicted scores correlated with those measured by an experienced therapist in hemiplegic stroke patients.

The maximum total score that can be obtained in Fugl Meyer assessment isthough it is common practice to assess all domains brunstrom. Human motion recognition based on neural network. He and his colleagues developed an assessment scale to overcome this problem. Although two studies using manipulating devices with virtual realities showed modest correlations with conventional assessment tool, additional costs and space are required.

Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Review the manuscript and suggest some corrections: FMA scoring using Kinect has potential as valid assessment tool for motor function after stroke in the home-based vrunnstrom setting. Wearable sensors such as smart watches or wrist bands providing positional information can also be applied to solve the occlusion problem in our system. However, Fugl-Meyer test still holds good, possibly keyer it follows a hierarchical scoring system based on the level of difficulty in performing the tasks.


The k-fold means that the sample is randomly partitioned into k subsamples. Neurorehabil Brunnstom Repair ; In this manner, 8- to fold cross validations for each FMA item were performed.

Kong K-H, Lee J. Kinect is a relatively inexpensive depth-sensing camera and no additional space and devices are required.

Parkinsonism reduces coordination of fingers, wrist, and arm in fine motor control. Movement Therapy in Hemiplegia: The equation for normalized jerk is described in the following equation: Support Center Support Center.

The FMA scoring system using Kinect is valid and provides additional quantitative measures of motion smoothness in stroke patients.

Acquisition of more patient data may increase the accuracy of brunnstromm tool.
