Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This review examines the efficacy of NIBS coupled with OT interventions. Sixty studies utilizing OT along with NIBS were included. Results support the use of NIBS as an add-on to OT interventions. Identifying the efficacy of NIBS as an adjuvant to existing therapies assists in characterizing interventions that may be useful in those clinical populations in which high-intensity therapy is not tolerable or feasible.
