Six patients with paresis of the arm within at least six months after stroke were randomly to a group of functional activities (GAF - n=3) and group of motor standards (GPM - n=3). Both groups performed 15 sessions of mirror therapy for 30 minutes, but the first one (GAF) were instructed to do the bilateral and symmetrical movements based on functional activities (i.e. games fitting) and the second one (GAP) made movements based on normal motor patterns (i.e. wrist flexion-extension).
