Case Presentation #24

The patient is a 60 year old man admitted with left hemiparesis due to ischemic stroke in the basin of the right middle cerebral artery. Physiotherapy program commenced for him after discharge. The applied physiotherapeutic exercises included various techniques like Pegbourd and Purdo pegboard exercises as well as training in equilibrium and walking. The patient obtained satisfactory results in terms of movement of the body and preserving the equilibrium, improvement of voluntary movement of the upper and lower left limb achieved via the help of some compensatory mechanisms. Despite the applied conventional physiotherapy, the patient failed to gain independence in daily activities. We ascribe this satisfactory recovery only to the short period of application of "Recovery Tech" VR rehabilitation. Most of the time for a better recovery of patients with stroke, a combination method including VR therapy is needed.
