Constraint-Induced Therapy (CIT) for Arm and Hand Paralysis After Stroke

Many individuals who have a stroke are left with paralysis of the upper extremities. CIT is a treatment that encourages the use of the stroke-affected limb by constraining the non-affected limb in a mitt, sling, splint or glove. Intense exercises are done using the stroke-affected arm or hand.

  • CIT restraints are worn for up to 90 percent of the waking hours.
  • Restraints can be removed for activities such as bathing.
  • Small steps are used to break down complex tasks such as making a phone call.
  • Verbal and written feedback is used to help motivate and inform persons undergoing CIT.
