We examined whether an OT regimen that combines modified constraint-induced unimanual therapy with bimanual therapy can improve hand function in children with unilateral brain injury. We also examined the optimal order of each therapy type. We found that combined unimanual and bimanual intensive OT improves motor and functional upper-extremity use in these children. Improvement appears to be independent of the order in which the therapies are combined.
