Abstract

The study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of mirror therapy on motor function among patients

with cerebro vascular accident . Quasi experimental non- randomized control group design was adopted

for the study. The sample were selected out of 60 samples, 30 were in study group and 30 in control group.

Mirror therapy was given for 30 minutes to the study group for 10 days and with holded for control group.

Post test was done for both study group and control group after 14 days. The findings revealed that, in study

group, the mean score on level of motor function among patients with Cerebro Vascular Accident in study

group was 1.46 in pre test and 2.46 in post test. The estimated paired ‘t’ value was 8.41 which was significant

at p ? 0.05. Hence the research hypothesis (H1) was accepted. The mean score on level of motor function

among patients with Cerebro Vascular Accident in study group was 2.46 and in control group was 0.71. The

estimated unpaired ‘t’ value was 6.25 which is significant at p ? 0.05. Hence the research hypothesis (H2)

was accepted. The study concluded that the Mirror therapy is effective to improve the level of motor function

among patients with Cerebro Vascular Accident.
