Purpose: To use a unique method of service delivery for Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy Relevance: Despite strong evidence of effectiveness Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy is not a readily available treatment option in New Zealand post-stroke. There is no hard evidence to provide a rationale for the lack of this treatment option however, anecdotally the amount of therapist time required and therefore the amount of human resource consumed deems this treatment financially prohibitive. Participants: A self-selected group of chronic stroke patients (n=6, time since stroke ranged from 22 to 84 months). Methods: A Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy programme was delivered five hours a day for five days a week for 2 two weeks. as per the original protocol described by Wolf and colleagues
