Bilateral upper limb rehabilitation with videogame-based feedback in corticobasal degeneration: a case reports study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a combination of cortical and basal ganglia signs. We reported two cases treated with a bilateral upper limb rehabilitation tool with videogame based feedback for 3 time per week for 8 weeks. Both patients showed an improvement of pinch and grasp forces and motor function. However, both of them reported an increased upper limb pain. Bilateral upper limb mechanical device with exergame feedback was effective also in the two patients suffering of CBD for limiting the effects of apraxia by performing intensive purposeful task training.
