I Internacional Symposium of CIMT 

The 1st International Symposium of Constraint-Induced Therapy aimed to promote opportunities for professionals, students and researchers in the field of rehabilitation to share their experiences and knowledge, in addition to updating the scientific and clinical community.


This Symposium was the result of an international collaboration between the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar - Brazil) and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB - USA) and had speakers from Canada, Australia, Spain, Colombia in addition to the hosts, Brazil and the United States. .


There were three days of many exchanges and learning with participants from Germany, Turkey, Ireland, Australia, Kuwait, Japan, England, Canada, Italy, the United States and Brazil.




The TCI group has already participated in research in collaboration with several universities in Brazil. Their research is currently focused on the Functionality and Technological Innovation in Neurorehabilitation Group (GFIT-neuro) at UFSCar-SP.

Clinical Care



Terapia por Contensão Induzida®️ group has a space in São Paulo, Feito em Corpo Clinic, where upper limb and lower limb protocols are performed for adult patients.

The clinic has a room prepared for the care of patients who perform the Constraint-Induced Therapy protocol.

Before starting treatment, the patient undergoes a specific evaluation with a trained therapist, to evaluate the selection criteria for the technique in addition to specific evaluations before and after the end of therapy.
