Abstract

There is evidence that increased intensity of therapy may contribute to improved functional outcomes and efficiency of the subacute rehabilitation process. However the benefits of increased therapy are not able to be generalized across all impairment groups. The amount and type of daily inpatient therapy required to maximize outcomes has not been clearly established. We examined whether there was variation across impairments in the amount of therapy received by inpatients and if the intensity of therapy was associated with rehabilitation outcomes including functional change and length of stay.
