STROKE-CONSTRAINT INDUCED MOVEMENT THERAPY (CIMT)

1. CIMT has been shown to produce significant improvements in arm motor function that persist > 1 year (EXCITE Trial, Wolf et al., 2006).

2. CIMT requires that patients be able to extend their wrists and actively move their digits.

3. In the EXCITE trial, participants were required to have at least 10 o of active wrist extension, at least 10 o of thumb abduction/extension, and at least 10 o of extension in at least two additional digits.
