Abstract
Background: Cerebellar transcranial may be a promising manner for the reconstitution of reaching coordination deficits for stroke patients. Objective: To research the result of cerebellar direct current stimulation on reachingcoordination in Egyptian chronic stroke Patients & Methods: Randomly dividing for Thirty chronic stroke patients to a pair of groups; Group A: exposed to cerebellar Transcranial direct current stimulation with physiotherapy program and B: exposed to selected physical therapy program solely. Treatment sessions were performed three times/week for five sequential weeks. Arm reaching function and coordination was assessed using the Fugl-Meyer arm section scale (FMUA) and Action Research Arm Test (ARAT), wheres analysis of acceleration and movement time of reaching was done using video processing by Kinovea software system program. Results: Significant increase of Fugl-Meyer arm section scale and Action Research Arm Testpost-treatment in group A only. A extremely significant increasein the mean accelerationwas found post-treatments, with a tendency towards the significant distinction between each groups post-treatment in favor of group A. Significantly decreasing in movement time of specific reaching phase in post-treatment for the group (A). Moreover, a significant distinctionin movement time was detected between both groups post-treatment Conclusion: Cerebellar transcranial direct current stimulation is beneficial in improving reaching perform and coordination deficits in chronic stroke patients.

Key words: Cerebellar Transcranial direct current stimulation, stroke, reaching
