Can Addition of Motivational Interviewing to Conventional Therapy and Task Oriented Training Improve Outcome After Stroke? A Randomized Controlled Trial

Background: Stroke can result in loss of self-efficacy in the use of upper limb for functional activities. Thus, many techniques such as conventional therapy (CT) and task oriented training (TOT) are used for the rehabilitation of upper limb function. Recently,

Remodelling the protocol of lower limb constraint-induced movement therapy: a pilot randomized controlled trial

During constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT), the tasks practiced have been traditionally measured using hours. Recent studies have indicated that it is equally effective and easier when the number of repetitions is used for this purpose. Aim: The aim of this

Number of repetitions versus duration in hours as dose measures of task practice during constraint-induced movement therapy: A pilot randomized controlled trial

Background: Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is used in rehabilitation of the upper limbs after stroke. However, its protocol, especially the issue of doses, seems not clear as duration of task practice in hours is used as a measure of dose.
