In brief: Half body weak

Hemiplegia means half the body.
Paralysis means inability to move. Following a stroke a person may be paralysed on only one half of the body. Any damage to one side of the brain can result in paralysis of the opposite side of the body.

In brief: Hemiplegia

Heniplegia is the loss of function on one side of the body.
This usually occurs after a stroke or trauma to the opposite side of the brain although some spine injuries can affect one side. Paralysis refers to weakness (paresis) to complete loss of function (plegia).
