Abstract

Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIT) is a highly specialized form of rehabilitation for those with upper-limb paresis. The intervention uses a combination of motor training elements and psychological concepts to facilitate increased use of the affected limb as well as improved movement quality and control. Importantly, CIT is designed to achieve real-world improvements through behavioral measures that facilitate the incorporation of regained abilities into the person’s spontaneous behavior.
