Stroke patients and children with cerebral palsy tend to experience severe arm-hand problems in their daily lives. This dissertation aims to develop a tool to measure arm-hand performance in the home. The tool must be able to measure a) the activities to be performed, b) how often the arms and hands are used, and c) the quality of these movements. This measurement tool is important for evaluating patient progress, detecting arm-hand problems, adapting treatment to the patient’s needs, and assessing the effectiveness of new treatments.
