Background. Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CIMT) has controlled evidence of efficacy for improving real-world paretic limb use in non-progressive physically disabling disorders (stroke, cerebral palsy). Objective. This study sought to determine whether this therapy can produce comparable results with a progressive disorder such as multiple sclerosis (MS). We conducted a preliminary phase II randomized controlled trial of CIMT versus a program of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)...

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of nonprogressive neuro-developmental conditions occurring in early childhood that causes movement disorders and physical disability. Measuring activity levels and gait patterns is an important aspect of CP rehabilitation programs. Traditionally, such programs utilize commercially available laboratory systems, which cannot to be utilized in community living. In this study, a novel, shoe-based, wearable sensor system (pediatric SmartShoe) was tested on 11 healthy ch...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CI therapy) for real-world function and neuroplasticity in progressive MS. BACKGROUND: Progressive MS lacks an established effective treatment. CI therapy has shown efficacy for arm use in stroke and cerebral palsy in clinical trials, but its efficacy for MS is undetermined. However, pilot findings were positive (Mark et al, Mult Scler 2008). Therefore, we conducted a randomized trial for MS. Because CI therapy has increased neuroplasticit...

ObjectiveTo evaluate whether Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CI therapy) may benefit chronic upper extremity hemiparesis in progressive multiple sclerosis (MS).MethodsFive patients with progressive MS, who had chronic upper extremity hemiparesis and evidence for learned non-use of the paretic limb in the life situation, underwent 30 hours of repetitive task training and shaping for the paretic limb over 2–10 consecutive weeks, along with physical restraint of the less-affected arm and a “tr...
