This research centers on the comparison of the immediate efficacy (right after therapy) and the maintained efficacy (3 months and 6 months) between those who receive "Modified Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy" (mCIMT hereafter) at different age groups and those who receive only the bilateral arm training at different age groups. The purpose of this research is to offer more specific suggestions in exercise for Children with Brain Damage and to increase the use of and the confidence for the affected side of Children with Brain Damage.
"Modified Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy" is one of the most recent treatments for children with Brain damage.
This method focuses on the constrained use of the healthy hand and the forced use of the affected hand, in order to avoid the frequent assistance of the healthy hand to the affected hand as well as to increase the use of the affected hand as much as possible.
This method promotes the function of the affected hand by repetitively operating objects, increasing the sensory inputs of the affected hand, promoting the recognition capability of the affected hand, and intensively training with activities. This will build up the patient's confidence of using the affected hand, reduce the development learn-nonuse, avoid not using the affected hand, and promote the function of the affected hand in everyday life.

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the benefit of two different treatment approaches for the hemiplegic arm, modified Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy and task-related bimanual tra...
Emerging research suggests the use of self-regulation (SR) strategies at improving functional regain in patients with brain injury. SR is proposed to produce an added effect to the effecti...
A randomized control trial of constraint-induced movement therapy and bimanual training. The protocols have been developed at Columbia University to be child friendly and draws upon our ex...
The purpose of this study is to determine if a modified protocol of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIT) is effective in rehabilitation treatment of arm paresis in children with cereb...
This study intends to compare the efficacy of of virtual reality therapy(VRT) with modified constraint induced movement therapy(mCIMT) versus modified constraint induced movement therapy a...
The National Stroke Foundation recommends that Occupational Therapists use Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) with stroke survivors that experience an upper limb deficit. CIMT involves constra...
Reducing compensatory strategies during repetitive upper-limb training may be helpful in relearning motor skills.
Joint constraint interferes with the coordinative structure in joint movements used to optimize postural stability. This study aimed to investigate changes in postural synergy when the ankle joints we...
Constraint-induced therapy (CIT) is effective, but concerns have been repeatedly raised regarding the generalizability, feasibility, and potentially intrusive nature of restraining a child's unimpaire...
Hypertension is one of the main risk factor for dementia. The subtle damage provoked by chronic high blood pressure in the brain is usually evidenced by conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ...
A synthetic methylprostaglandin E1 analog that reduces gastric acid secretion and enhances the gastric mucus-bicarbonate barrier. It is effective in the therapy of gastric ulcers and gives significant protection against NSAID-induced gastric mucosal damage. The drug also prevents cyclosporin A-induced damage to endocrine and exocrine pancreatic secretions. It shows a low order of acute toxicity and there is no evidence of embryotoxicity, fetotoxicity, teratogenicity, or mutagenicity in animal studies.
A condition characterized by long-standing brain dysfunction or damage, usually of three months duration or longer. Potential etiologies include BRAIN INFARCTION; certain NEURODEGENERATIVE DISORDERS; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ANOXIA, BRAIN; ENCEPHALITIS; certain NEUROTOXICITY SYNDROMES; metabolic disorders (see BRAIN DISEASES, METABOLIC); and other conditions.
Therapy for MOVEMENT DISORDERS, especially PARKINSON DISEASE, that applies electricity via stereotactic implantation of ELECTRODES in specific areas of the BRAIN such as the THALAMUS. The electrodes are attached to a neurostimulator placed subcutaneously.
Tissue NECROSIS in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Brain infarction is the result of a cascade of events initiated by inadequate blood flow through the brain that is followed by HYPOXIA and HYPOGLYCEMIA in brain tissue. Damage may be temporary, permanent, selective or pan-necrosis.
A form of acquired brain injury which occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
