Abstract

In this paper we propose a division into three subtypes of AOS. We believe that this division provides a significant step forward towards a more specific and clinically useful diagnosis of AOS. We also believe the major impact on the therapy for AOS. The ideomotor AOS patients for example, need to regain access to the GMPs whereas kinetic AOS patients have to relearn the exact execution movement.Currently we are working on a therapeutic instrument for AOS, amongst other things based on this new insight. We hope to present the development process of this instrument in the near future.
