The TeleCIMT Approach
Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is a proven arm rehabilitation approach that involves intensive use of your weaker arm whilst wearing a mitt on your stronger arm. CIMT has been developed to improve arm function after a neurological injury, such as after a stroke.
CIMT works on simple ‘use it to improve it’ principles and results in rewiring of the brain as new pathways develop, along with increased arm movement.
TeleCIMT is a three-week home-based CIMT program developed by an international group of therapists experienced in CIMT.
These resources can be used fully via telehealth or for face-to-face and mixed models of CIMT delivery.
