Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Both mental practice and action observation are portable, easy to use, efficacious interventions shown to improve arm and hand function poststroke. We combined these no-cost interventions and found that they are even more effective when combined than when administered separately. This is a significant advancement for OT practitioners, proving efficacy of an inexpensive regimen that combines two promising interventions to significantly increase poststroke hand function.
