1. To assess whether post-stroke arm/hand training at home improves arm/hand functionality.
2. To assess which training modality (passive/active system) improves arm/hand functionality most.
3. To examine whether stroke patients increase their total amount of practice when provided with the opportunity.
4. To examine whether additional training enhances changes in arm/hand functionality, and which factors contribute to this.
