Upper limb weakness is one of the most distressing, long-term consequences of stroke and can be difficult to rehabilitate due to an overreliance on the opposing limb in everyday life. Previous studies have shown potential for cueing to improve upper limb rehabilitation, although these have been conducted in clinical settings. In this paper we describe CueS, a wrist worn cueing device which prompts the wearer to move their upper limb more frequently in their day to day lives. We conducted two, week-long 'in the wild' deployments of CueS with seven participants to obtain reflections and experiences around using the device. All participants reported increased general activity levels from wearing CueS and objective data showed increased levels of activity following cue provision. We reflect upon the potential of wearable cueing devices for upper limb rehabilitation after stroke
