 We report on a trial of ward-based constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) protocol with a division of labor between occupational therapists and nurses for stroke patients with hemiparetic arms in Kaifukuki Rehabilitation Ward. Six subacute stroke patients with hemiparetic arms received the daily ward-based 40-minute CIMT training for 10 consecutive weeks. We assessed the arm function in pre- and post-intervention using both the Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA) and Motor Activity Log (MAL). Both the FMA and MAL scales showed significant improvement in pre- and post-intervention. The ward-based CIMT might be an effective approach for paretic arms in subacute stroke patients.
