Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

With 65% of survivors left with hemiparesis affecting activities of daily living (ADL) performance at six months poststroke, as motor control recovery plateaus at five weeks post stroke, there is a need to identify effective interventions that can begin immediately. This review asked: What is the effectiveness of action observation intervention, as compared to usual rehabilitation therapy, no treatment, or sham treatment for improving upper extremity function or ADL function in stroke survivors with motor impairment?
