Researchers: A/Pr Natasha Lannin (Principal investigator)

Brief description Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is the leading cause of disability in adults in Australia. After ABI, many people are unable to use their upper limb (UL) to perform important, everyday tasks. While there is research evidence which has shown that movement therapy targeted at the UL will improve the likelihood of being able to use the UL after rehabilitation, many therapists do not currently provide sufficient UL movement therapy to patients. This practice gap will be addressed in this project.
