Abstract

Background. Upper limb paresis remains a relevant challenge in stroke rehabilitation. Aim.To evaluate if adding mirror therapy (MT) to conventional therapy (CT) can improve motor recovery of the upper limb in subacute stroke patients. Design. Prospective, single-center, single-blind, ran-domised, controlled trial. Setting. Subacute stroke patients referred to a Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine Unit between October 2009 and August 2011. Population. Twenty-six subacute stroke patients (time from stroke
