The effect of sensory stimulation combined with mirror box therapy on fine dexterity of the hand: Mobilisation and Tactile Stimulation (MTS)
"Looking into the effect of Mobilisation and Tactile stimulation (MTS) with mirror box therapy on fine dexterity of the hand.
We tested 15 subjects with normal hand function. The 9 Hole Peg Test (9HPT) was performed, timed in seconds, on each hand, MTS was given for 15 minutes on the non-dominant hand and then the 9HPT was performed again on both hands.
On average, time taken for the 9HPT increased in both hands. T-test results on the non-dominant hand were not statistically significant.
MTS may affect fine dexterity of the hand, but more research is needed to be fully conclusive. "
