Constraint Induced Movement Therapy

A Practical Guide for Therapists

How to do Constraint Induced Movement Therapy: a practical guide

We are pleased to offer a practical book for therapists to use on a day-to-day basis in their clinics, or with individuals for whom CIMT is the chosen intervention.

Constraint Induced Movement Therapy is a NICE recommended, highly effective treatment for people who have upper limb dysfunction. Having been underused it is now rapidly growing in popularity by therapists working in neurological rehabilitation.

For clients with upper limb dysfunction following stroke or spinal cord injury, this technique involves restricting the unaffected limb in order to ensure the affected arm and hand is used to perform functional tasks.

The results can be amazing.


This book (soon to be reprinted for the third time) has been written by therapists (Annie Meharg PT & Jill Kings OT) to provide a practical guide for therapists wishing to find out more about CIMT, and for those wanting to use CIMT with their clients but not feeling confident enough to get started. This will support you throughout with tips and ideas from therapists and clients who have already used it.

"This book … is useful for therapists thinking of setting up a constraint induced therapy (CIMT) programme or those interested in what it may look like but are unsure where to start."

"If you need examples of intensive exercises, patient information leaflets or checklists, I would highly recommend this book."

Charitable Activity

Part of our Company vision is to support those who are disabled and have limited access to healthcare resources, economic independence, and choices in their lives and occupations. We have found that these people, particularly in developing countries, also tend to be poor, disadvantaged, and marginalised within their communities.

We believe that we reap what we sow. To reflect something of our values, beliefs and purpose, we are committed to giving of our time, skills, knowledge, and profit, to benefit those who have less, particularly where disability is an issue.

Harrison Training has partners in Romania and Tanzania, with whom we collaborate, to provide practical and tangible support that impacts the daily lives of individuals affected by disability, and their caregivers.
