OTs commonly treat persons with varying degrees of hemiplegia. This study explored two strategies (limb dominance and cognitive loading) that would either facilitate or inhibit upper-extremity motor control. In a healthy population, limb dominance had much more of an inhibiting effect upon bimanual motor control than cognitive loading. This may be an important consideration when teaching persons with hemiplegia during upper-extremity bimanual functional activities.
