The assessment of stroke patients is a long lasting process in which physicians estimate the impairment import of the patients through clinical scales and physiological exams. This is a crucial phase for defining the patient treatment as well as monitoring the recovery process. In order to support the whole set of operations involved in the assessment, the authors proposed a simple evaluation tool that easily allows physicians to collect performance, muscles activity and upper-limb kinematic data from patients and thus extract clinically useful information. Preliminary results obtained form 3 healthy subjects and 2 patients demonstrated the suitability of the proposed system for collecting relevant information in just one short session.
