Clinical Applications


In addition to understanding mechanisms of brain recovery, clinical studies in the laboratory investigate both the effectiveness and feasibility of treatments designed to aid in recovery. Here, one of our clinical collaborators works with a patient involved in the ACmCIMT trial. The purpose of this trial was to see if mCIMT (modified constraint induced movement therapy, a therapy used to help with recovery of arm and hand function) was effective and feasible when performed in a clinical setting and in a manner similar to the way rehabilitation services are delivered in Canada.
