CMAS: Clinical movement assessment system for neuromotor disorders Conference Paper uri icon


  • We are developing a clinical movement assessment system (CMAS) to quantify motor effort following neuromotor injury. The system will allow for easy and versatile data collection by non-technical staff and patients from a variety of devices by using recent advances in technology for real-time reconfiguration. We will demonstrate the effectiveness of our system by developing a patient-friendly device. A prototype of the device has been implemented and used to measure finger forces inflexion and extension. The efficiency of the CMAS devices will be demonstrated by making quantitative assessments of neuromotor efforts following stroke in a patient population. At present, our experimental results on two subjects show the effectiveness of our device. 2006 IEEE.
