Sensation allows us to make sense of - and interact with - our environment and those around us. It can be affected after a neurological event, such as a stroke. Movements may lack precision and control and you may find it difficult to use your arm/hand in activities of daily living. Sensory ‘re-education’ is used in an attempt to stimulate and retrain neural pathways. These pathways between the brain and body are complex; specific difficulties and recovery levels are different for everyone.

This home exercise document is designed for both the clinician and the patient/client they are supporting. It introduces the rationale for sensory re-education and then details principles and techniques. These include exercises focused on texture, tactile localisation, pressure and temperature detection.
