This study sought to determine whether 6 wk of 45-min weekly mirror therapy sessions improved upper-extremity (UE) motor function poststroke. Fugl-Meyer Assessment and Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) changes were not statistically significant, but positive changes on the Stroke Impact Scale contradicted COPM results. Mirror therapy may be an effective treatment for stroke rehabilitation, but further research is needed.
