A new systematic review shows that therapy of the affected upper limb via intensive treatments with high-repetitions with or without robotic aids presents greater effectiveness in the motor control of the upper limb and dexterity compared to the Bobath concept.

The Bobath concept is not superior to other approaches for regaining mobility, motor control of the lower limb gait and balance, and activities of daily living of patients after stroke.
