The SENSe© Integrated Assessment and Training Unit have been developed to support evidence-based rehabilitation of sensory function after stroke. It includes three standardized measures of sensory function designed to assess for impaired body sensation in persons experiencing stroke and in the clinical setting. Its purpose is to provide clinicians with an evidence-based sensory approach that will aid accurate and early detection of sensory impairments across various somatosensory modalities.
The standardised measures within the SENSe Integrated Assessment and Training Unit are the:
- Tactile Discrimination Test, TDT (Carey, Oke, & Matyas, 1997),
- Wrist Position Sense Test, WPST (Carey, Oke, & Matyas, 1996) and
- Functional Tactile Object Recognition Test, fTORT (Carey et al., 2020)
An overview of each of these quantitative measures is provided in this section by clicking on the name of the measure above.
