Influence of positional changes on spasticity of the upper extremity in poststroke hemiplegics

High modulation of spasticity in the upper limbs measured using the MAS, MTS and TSS when transitioning to the standing position from either the supine or sitting position demonstrated that posture plays a role in modulating the spasticity of the hemiplegic upper limb in poststroke patients.
