The investigators will investigate the efficacy of a newly developed functional exercise device (FitMi Plus) for people in the chronic stage after a stroke compared to the FitMi Basic (i.e. without functional exercises). FitMi Plus combines objects commonly used during activities of daily living with sensors that can track and record the patient's direction and degree of movement as they perform specific functional tasks described on a computer.
|Experimental: FitMi Plus
Participants will perform targeted movement exercises by interacting with the FitMi Plus Functional modules at least 50% of the time they spend exercising. Participants will be asked to exercise at least 3 hours per week for 3 consecutive weeks.
Device: FitMi Plus
A set of common objects that couple with a wireless sensor platform to allow the performance of functional exercises to be measured by a motivating software platform.
|Active Comparator: FitMi Basic
Participants will perform targeted movement exercises by interacting with the FitMi Basic pucks, as described and monitored on a computer. Participants will be asked to exercise at least 3 hours per week for 3 consecutive weeks.
Device: FitMi Basic
A wireless sensor platform that allows movement subcomponents and point-to-point exercises to be measured by a motivating software platform.
