A nonrandomized control group research study was done to evaluate the effectiveness of mirror therapy on upper extremity motor function among stroke patients in selected hospitals, Kollam. The objectives were to assess the effect of mirror therapy on upper extremity motor function among stroke patients, to find the association between pretest motor scores with selected demographic variables. Conceptual framework used was Roys Adaptation Model by Sr. Callista Roy. Quantitative research approach was selected with nonrandomized control group research design. Convenient sampling was used. Sample size included 60 samples, 30 each in experimental and control group. Based on inclusion criteria samples were selected. Pretest was conducted for both experimental and control group on first day, followed by mirror therapy and on 7th day posttest was conducted. The mirror therapy was provided only for the experimental group, with 10 minutes duration, no intervention was given for the control group. The findings of the study were, there is significant difference in pretest motor function scores and posttest motor function scores of the affected upper extremity in the experimental group at 0.05 level of significance, which indicates that there is significant decrease in the disability among stroke patients following MT intervention.
