can anyone tell me is there any problem in giving passive movements to both sides {by therapist & caretaker} at the same time in a geriatric patient who is on ventilator since 2 years, unconcious following brainstem haemmorhage.Her right side is flaccid and left side is spastic.

I would have to say that there should be no problem with this, especially given the status of the patient.  If the therapist can teach the caretaker what an end feel is all about, and how the joints should move and feel, so that force is not over done,I cant really see any problem.
