The review details evidence on interventions and physical therapy products for motor recovery after stroke that showed improvements in recovery of arm function. These interventions included  high-intensity physiotherapy and repetitive task training. Techniques reviewed include constraint-induced movement therapy, electromyographic biofeedback, mental practice with motor imagery, robotics and biofeedback. Exercise programs for community dwelling stroke patient helped maintain and improve the patient’s functional ability and HRQOL.
