Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Masamichi Moriya*, Kaoru Sakatani

Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) is well-established as a safe and effective monitoring tool for stroke recovery, including upper limb, lower limb recovery, motor learning, cortical function recovery, cerebral hemodynamic changes, cerebral oxygenation, therapy, clinical researches and evaluation of the risk for stroke. NIRS principles have been used to study brain oxygenation for several decades, but have more recently been applied to various uses. We provide a brief overview of our research and clinical applications of NIRS in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation field.
