 We performed a modified CI therapy for a patient with mild hemiplegia of the upper limbs. The patient was unable to improve frequency of usage of the affected arm in real life as much as the function of the affected arm. The case was a man in his 50s with hemiplegia of the right side. Three weeks of occupational therapy intervention saw improvement in upper limb function, but not in frequency of upper limb use. Therefore, target setting was done using upper-limb work selection decision support software, and modified CI therapy was performed. As a result, simplified upper limb function test, Fugl-Meyer Assessment, and Motor Activity Log improved, and many targeted items were achieved using the paralyzed hands. Continuous improvement of upper limb function was confirmed after discharging.
