Repetitive task practice reduces mean upper extremity motor impairment in of patients with chronic stroke, but response is highly variable. A method to predict meaningful reduction in impairment in response to training based on biomarkers and other data collected prior to an intervention is needed to establish realistic rehabilitation goals and to effectively allocate resources.
