Stroke rehabilitation maximises arm and hand function, helping persons with stroke regain the ability to perform many daily activities. Join this course to gain knowledge on neuroplasticity, evidence-based practices and factors that lead to functional improvement.

Course objectives

  • Review the current evidence-based practice in upper limb rehabilitation
  • List principles of closed, modified closed and open chain in fine motor performance training

  • Understand principles of management of upper limb spasticity and ataxia
  • Usage of different upper limb training devices, aids and orthoses
  • Highlight innovation in upper limb stroke rehabilitation
  • Identify principles of CIMT and its application to clinical setting
  • Practical session with patients
