Early inpatient rehabilitation is extremely important in functional improvement of patients suffering from cerebral stroke. From our point of view, in rehabilitation of patients after cerebral stroke, the estimation of sensorimotor reactions that enables the evaluation of sensorimotor functional changes is highly relevant. The article describes the comparison of sensorimotor reactions in two subgroups – stroke patients and healthy individuals – by applying Sensoneck system. The evaluation was performed before early stage of rehabilitation and thereafter (following early rehabilitation). In order to estimate the correlation between changes in functional independence and sensorimotor reactions, Functional Independence Measure was used. The study revealed that stroke patients had sensorimotor dysfunctions. During early rehabilitation, the quality of motion performance improved slightly, and sensorimotor reactions improved statistically significantly (P<0.05). The relationship between Functional Independence Measure and Sensoneck scores was not significant (P>0.05).
