An introduction to CIMT
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.
How does CIMT work?
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.
What is TeleCIMT?
TeleCIMT is a three-week home-based CIMT program developed by an international group of therapists experienced in CIMT. This could be run fully via telehealth or a mix of both face-to-face and telehealth.
