CIMT provides people with hemiplegia evidence based rehabilitation for the arm and hand that gives lasting, meaningful results. CIMT Centres provide intensive therapy courses for children and adults across the UK and Europe.
CIMT or Constraint Induced Movement Therapy is a form of rehabilitation of the arm and hand following a neurological event such as a stroke.
Constraint induced movement therapy is suitable for adults and children with hemiplegia, where one arm is weaker than the other. CIMT involves rehabilitation of the weaker arm while restraining the stronger arm.
Constraint induced movement therapy has a large body of scientific research behind it and the effects of the treatment have been shown not only on the hand and arm, but on the brain itself.
A constraint induced movement therapy programme is short but intensive. Treatment is provided daily over a period of 2 to 3 weeks and led by a specialist physiotherapist or occupational therapist.
CIMT’s vision is to help as many people as possible to achieve meaningful results and improve the quality of their lives. CIMT vision is that every person who may benefit from constraint induced movement therapy is aware of the treatment and able to access a programme that is evidence-based and delivered by a specialist team. CIMT want to help as many adults and children as possible achieve their potential.
