 The outcome measures to assess the frequency of paretic arm use in activities of daily living in stroke patients were mainly used as subjective patient assessments. However, some researchers question the objectivity of such assessments in measuring upper extremity use in activities of daily living. This case report used accelerometer values to objectively assess the frequency of use of the paretic arm in activities daily living between pre- and post-constraint-induced movement therapy (CI therapy) for a stroke patient. The CI therapy intervention improved the conventional tests score for upper extremity function in activities of daily living, and accelerometer values of the paretic arm. Moreover, the accelerometer values of the paretic arm indicated an improvement the frequency of use of the paretic arm in bimanual activities. Although case study results are generally inconclusive, accelerometer values might be an objective method to assess the amount of paretic arm use in activities of daily living.
