Vietnamese therapists developed constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) models and completed a prospective nonrandomized study at two hospitals in Vietnam. Therapists at Hanoi Rehab Hospital delivered a low-dose (30-hour) CIMT protocol, and therapists in Ho Chi Minh City Children's Hospital delivered a high-dose (72-hour) CIMT protocol. Children in both low- and high-dose CIMT groups showed improvements in everyday activities and individual therapy goals. This study advances the delivery of evidence-based practice in Vietnam.
