GRASP

GRASP is a free, very useful resource to regain arm and hand movements after a stroke. It is a product of the University of British Columbia’s researcher-practitioner, Dr Janice Eng, PhD, PT/OT. She and her team developed this resource after a comprehensive neuro-rehab research program; it has two versions: A hospital version and a home version. Both versions consist of books, manuals, and video clips.

FAME

FAME is a group exercise program developed for people with stroke who have some standing and walking ability.  Research has shown that this program improved mobility, cardiovascular fitness, and arm and hand function. A physical therapist or occupational therapist instructed the patient in the program, but the patient did the program independently.
