The Effect of Occupation-Based Bilateral Upper Extremity Training in a Medical Setting for Stroke Patients: A Single-Blinded, Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial
Background: Occupation used in occupation-based intervention requires the use of 2 naturally coordinated hands. Objective: To investigate by implementing occupation-based bilateral upper extremity training in medical setting to stroke patients and determine its effect in patients ’ bilateral upper extremity function recovery. Methods: A total of 20 patients were randomly assigned to the experimental group (occupation-based bilateral upper extremity training) or control group (task-based bilateral upper extremity training).

In the new trial, colchicine reduced by as much as 34% a heart attack survivor's combined risk of either dying from heart disease or having cardiac arrest, a heart attack, a stroke or angioplasty.
The center of mass of the body in patients with stroke was oriented toward the nonparetic side. Abnormal weight shift increases the risk of falls. Therefore, many therapists make an effort to help their functional recovery through balance training. Our aim...
