Constraint-induced movement therapy to improve gait and mobility in patients with neurological injury

Project: Research/Creation Project

Project Details


Considering that CIMRT is one of the main recovery strategies in individuals after central nervous system injury, this project aims to advance an important gap in the literature: whether the original lower limb TIMR protocol can increase the actual use of the lower limb. Research on the effectiveness of original TIMR 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, providing a better description of outcomes and behavior in relation to lower limb use, are important for refining assessment and treatment techniques, as well as providing scientific bases to support clinical practice and future studies such as randomized controlled clinical trials.

Layman's description

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