Relationship Between Duration of Stroke and Hand Function Recovery in Patient with Stroke
Keywords:stroke, jebson taylor hand function test, brunnstrom recovery stages, duration.
Background- Stroke is sudden loss of neurological function caused by an interruption of the blood flow to the brain. The fine motor activities are also affected which leads to difficulty in writing, prehension and precision are also affected so patient is also not able to hold the or any object in the hand which required to performed in daily activities. Methods - This is an Observational study with a study duration was of 1 year. A total of 30 participants were recruited using the purposive sampling method from the Department of neuroscience, Vikhe Patil Memorial Hospital, Ahmednagar; Puntamba stroke center, Puntamba and Rahuri stroke center. Result - The study shows in jebson taylor hand function test, the most affected component is writing which requires more time followed by moving heavy objects and stimulated feeding, in addition requires less time for card turning, followed by small common object and checkers stacking and the least time required for performing moving light object in stroke patients. Conclusion- The study concludes that there is no relationship between duration of stroke and hand function recovery in patients with stroke. The jebson taylor hand function test shows that the most time required is for small dexterity movement like writing, stimulated feeding. The patients find difficulty in moving heavy objects. The less difficulty task is card turning, checkers stacking, moving light objects, which requires use of all the fingers.
