Introduction. The results of clinical testing of the innovative technology TRENAR® confirmed its effectiveness in motor and speech recovery after a stroke. The main advantage of the technology that enables a more efficient motor and speech recovery is advanced training programs, based on different methods. This allows one to select individual approach to the rehabilitation process. In order to determine a personalized recovery plan it is necessary to develop criteria to quantify motor recovery dynamics.
The purpose of the research is to determine criteria for separately quantifying recovery dynamics in proximal and distal parts of the upper and lower extremities, as well as to perform an integral quantitative assessment of the severity of motor function disorders after a stroke.
Results. The method for quantitative estimation of the effectiveness of motor function rehabilitation after a stroke was developed.
One special feature of the technique is separate quantitative assessment of the motor function deficit dynamics of the affected lower and upper extremities, their proximal and distal sections, including fine motor skills, according to basic and additional criteria. The technique allows us to study the contribution of these indicators to the integral quantitative evaluation of the effectiveness of motor recovery during rehabilitation process. The technique has successfully passed pilot clinical trials during the studies of motor function recovery dynamics after a stroke when innovative technology TRENAR® for motor training / recovery was used. It is intended for informational support of medical decision-making when devising an individual plan for the rehabilitation of motor and speech functions after a stroke.
Conclusion. The method for quantitative assessment of motor function recovery dynamics forms the basis for assessing the effectiveness of rehabilitation processes in patients after a stroke and for developing individual plans for rehabilitation. It serves as the digital informational support for physicians and will be essential for developing mobile applications for smartphones and tablets that can be used during the rehabilitation process.
Keywords: quantitative assessment, criteria, rehabilitation, effectiveness, stroke, motor functions, speech, disorders.
