- ·Individuals hospitalized at intensive care unit discharge presented reduced upper limb function, physical function, muscle strength and quality of life.
- ·Six months of follow-up revealed improvements in upper limb function, but they were still reduced compared with healthy individuals.
- ·Early assessment of upper limb function may inform preventive approaches during the hospital stay and indicate early therapeutic interventions for functional recovery.
