Background: Enhancement of sensory input in the form of repetitive peripheral sensory stimulation (RPSS) can enhance excitability of the motor cortex and upper limb performance. Objective: To perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of effects of RPSS compared to control stimulation on improvement of motor impairments in the upper limb of subjects with stroke. Methods: We searched studies published between 1948 until July, 2016 and selected eight studies that applied a specific paradigm of stimulation (trains of 1 millisecond pulses at 10Hz delivered at 1 Hz). Continuous data were analyzed with pooled means of standard deviations of results of active versus control interventions with the Cohen and Hedges formulas. Adverse events were also assessed. Results: There was significant heterogeneity when data from all eight studies that included subjects at early (n=3) or chronic (n=5) stages after stroke were included, but not when only data from studies in the chronic phase were analyzed. There was a stat...
