Stroke has a very high global burden along with 150-152/100,000 cases in India investigated through a recent systematic review. In a study done by Wolf et al.  it was established that 85% of all the stroke sufferers experienced upper extremity hemiparesis, even 3 to 6 months later, between 55% and 75% of survivors continue to have upper extremity impairments, which are associated with low quality of life. There is also reduction of dexterous functions which also comprises one of the major causes of disability in stroke patients.[1,2]
