[WEB SITE] What is CIMT – Constraint Induced Movement Therapy

What is CIMT?

Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (“CIMT” or “CI Therapy”) is a form of rehabilitation of the arm and hand following a neurological event such as a stroke.

Constraint induced movement therapy is suitable for adults with hemiplegia, where one arm is weaker than the other. CIMT involves rehabilitation of the weaker arm while restraining the stronger arm. CIMT can make significant and lasting improvements to the amount and quality of use of the affected arm, which can have a major impact on your quality of life and function.

Constraint induced movement therapy has a large body of scientific research behind it and the effects of the treatment have been shown not only on the hand and arm, but on the brain itself.

A constraint induced movement therapy programme is short but intensive. Treatment is provided daily over a period of 2 to 3 weeks and led by a specialist physiotherapist or occupational therapist. You will wear a restraint “mitt” on your stronger hand for 90% of your waking hours throughout the programme, and take part in intensive therapy sessions as well as home practice.
