Responses of the Less Affected Arm to Bilateral Upper Limb Task Training in Early Rehabilitation After Stroke: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 07/11/2012
Morris JH et al. – The study suggests that bilateral training (BT) may lead to clinically small improvements in ipsilesional performance of fine, rapid dexterity tasks. Younger participants responded better to BT. There was no relationship between contralesional and ipsilesional recovery, suggesting that different causes and recovery mechanisms may exist.
