Mirror therapy (MT) is an evidence-based intervention for upper-extremity (UE) hemiparesis after stroke; however, few MT studies have utilized task-based activities. An RCT was conducted comparing subjects with UE hemiparesis poststroke who performed task-based MT (n=5) and exercise-based MT (n=3). Preliminary results have found significant improvement in all subjects on the COPM, ARAT, and SF-36, but no differences have been found between the two groups. Additional data is being collected.
