Who is Suitable for CIMT

Who is Suitable for CIMT

Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) was originally developed for stroke patients with upper limb weakness, however the treatment programme is suitable for many people with other neurological conditions who have upper limb weakness such as:

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Brain injury
  • Cerebral Palsy

In order to successfully participate in the treatment programme a certain degree of active movement is necessary in the weaker arm; a screening assessment is required for the therapist to determine suitability for the programme. This involves an assessment of the person's active movement in their weaker arm, current functional use as well other factors such as muscle tightness or stiffness. Once suitability has been established the therapist outlines full details of the programme requirements.
