|9-hole PEG test|
|Session||Left hand(s)||Right hand(s)|
Table 1: To assess the patient’s rehabilitation process, we conducted several 9-hole PEG tests, which measure the time to perform certain tasks. We collected data before the first session and repeated the test after every three sessions. The following table shows the results of the test for both hands. The time to complete the test with the affected hand decreased from 65 seconds before the treatment to 30 seconds after the last session. The completion time for the unaffected hand remained nearly constant during the whole treatment.
The mission is to pair recoveriX with cognitive processes and motor movements to make rehabilitation most effective.
