This was the first meeting of this patient interest group where research was presented. There was considerable interest in new approaches to retraining arm motor function.  One participant emphasized that the possibilities of new technology-assisted rehabilitation should be made better known among patients and health personnel.  The participants had also the opportunity to try out the YouGrabber.  Several of them did and seemed to enjoy the training.
