Project Details


Considering that TMIR is one of the main recovery strategies in individuals after a central nervous system injury, this project aims to advance an important gap in the literature: yes the original TIMR protocol for lower limbs can increase the use real of the lower limbs.

Research on the effectiveness of the original TMIR applied to the lower limb is scarce in the literature, with only one case study being published so far.

Studies that help evaluate the feasibility of applying the technique in this population, that provide a better description of the results and behavior in relation to the use of the lower limbs, are important to refine evaluation and treatment techniques, in addition to provide scientific bases to support clinical practice and future studies such as randomized controlled clinical trials.

Layman's description

The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of the original CIMT protocol for lower limbs on the use of these limbs in a real environment, on gait parameters, mobility and motor function.
