This study used accelerometers to quantify the real-world activity and affected upper-limb use of children with cerebral palsy who participated in constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT). Use of accelerometers as an outcome measure for pediatric CIMT are promising but will need confirmation in a larger study with a higher therapy dosage.
