Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is comprised of a set of techniques shown to produce significant changes in upper extremity (UE) function following stroke and other disorders. The significant positive results obtained with the UE protocol has led to the development of LE-CIMT, an intervention to improve lower extremity (LE) function. However, some modifications of the UE protocol were needed including: omitting use of a restraint device, development of supervised motor training tasks ...

Introduction Many breast cancer survivors report an inability to fully participate in activities of daily living after completing cancer treatment. Reduced activity participation is linked to negative consequences for individuals (eg, depression, reduced quality of life) and society (reduced workforce participation). There is currently a lack of evidence-based interventions that directly foster cancer survivors’ optimal participation in life roles and activities. Pilot study data suggest rehabil...

AbstractA 56-year-old woman with chronic stroke and gait dysfunction was recruited for this study. A Lower-Extremity Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (LE-CIMT) protocol was given consisting of 3.5 hours/day of supervised intervention activities on 10 consecutive weekdays. Motor training was inten

Background: Enhancement of sensory input in the form of repetitive peripheral sensory stimulation (RPSS) can enhance excitability of the motor cortex and upper limb performance. Objective: To perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of effects of RPSS compared to control stimulation on improvement of motor impairments in the upper limb of subjects with stroke. Methods: We searched studies published between 1948 until July, 2016 and selected eight studies that applied a specific paradigm of ...
