Objective: To examine the effectiveness of intensive practice of sit-to-stand on motor performance, exercise capacity and exercise efficiency in traumatic brain-injured patients during early inpatient rehabilitation. Design: Single-blind randomized controlled pilot study. Setting: Brain injury rehabilitation unit. Subjects: Twenty-four subjects who had recently sustained a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) were randomized into an experimental (n = 13) and a control (n = 11) group… 
Effects of sit to stand training on functional balance of children with cerebral palsy
Results of this study implied that specific sitting to stand training improved an ability of sit to stand and functional balance in subjects with cerebral palsy.
Feasibility of motor capability training at home in children with acquired brain injury
Continuing exercising at home may be a feasible and efficient option for a considerable proportion of ABI children who are compliant with a simple but challenging exercise programme.
Group exercise can improve participants' mobility in an outpatient rehabilitation setting: a randomized controlled trial
This short-duration circuit class programme improved mobility, but not strength, and there were no clinically important or statistically significant between-group differences at retest for the measures of strength.
Task-oriented progressive resistance strength training improves muscle strength and functional performance in individuals with stroke
The task-oriented progressive resistance strength training programme could improve lower extremity muscle strength in individuals with chronic stroke and could carry over into improvement in functional abilities.
Motor relearning programme for stroke patients: a randomized controlled trial
The motor relearning programme was found to be effective for enhancing functional recovery of patients who had a stroke and both ‘sequential’ and ‘function-based’ concepts are important in applying the motor rele learning approach to the rehabilitation of stroke patients.
Effects of task-specific training on functional ability in children with mild to moderate cerebral palsy
FTSST is a reliable and valid functional outcome measure after the task-specific training in children with mild to moderate CP and it correlated significantly with MAS and with PBS.
Motor impairment rehabilitation post acquired brain injury
Although there are a variety of treatment strategies to manage motor impairments and activity limitations following ABI, most are only supported by limited evidence pointing to the need for studies of improved methodological quality in this area.
Physiotherapy after traumatic brain injury: A systematic review of the literature
Although some recommendations for the effectiveness of physical therapy interventions could be expressed, there are many questions concerning the treatment of humans with TBI which have not been investigated so far.
Effects of Training on Sit to Stand on Various Seat Heights on the Balance in Stroke Patients
This study aimed to compare the effects of sit-to-stand training, or training to stand up from sitting positions at various seat heights, on the balance recovery among stroke patients. This study
Effect of task-oriented training for people with stroke: a meta-analysis focused on repetitive or circuit training
Although this meta-analysis provides evidence of task-oriented training for improving functioning after stroke, further studies are necessary to investigate the effects of training on upper extremities and the overall cost-effectiveness of such training.


The effect of aerobic training on rehabilitation outcomes after recent severe brain injury: a randomized controlled evaluation.
The benefits of improved cardiovascular fitness did not appear to extend to measurable change in function or psychologic state in recently brain-injured inpatients.
Arm ability training for stroke and traumatic brain injury patients with mild arm paresis: a single-blind, randomized, controlled trial.
The AAT reduces focal disability among stroke and TBI patients with mild central arm paresis and a functional benefit existed at 1-year follow-up.
Improving cognitive function after brain injury: the use of exercise and virtual reality.
Exercising in a virtual environment offers the potential for significant gains in cognitive function after a 4-week intervention program and significant improvements in reaction times and movement times were gained following a single bout of VR exercise.
Task-related training improves performance of seated reaching tasks after stroke. A randomized controlled trial.
This study provides strong evidence of the efficacy of task-related motor training in improving the ability to balance during seated reaching activities after stroke.
Aerobic training in brain-injured patients
A pilot study was performed to assess the value of aerobic training as part of the rehabilitation programme for patients with a single incident brain injury requiring admission to an inpatient
Can brain-injured patients participate in an aerobic exercise programme during early inpatient rehabilitation?
Brain-injured patients with a range of disabilities have the capacity to participate in an exercise programme during early inpatient rehabilitation, though some may take longer to achieve adequate intensity of aerobic exercise.

It is suggested that functional activities may be better than tabletop activities for fine motor coordination training with this population of 45 men with brain injury.
Progressive exercise testing in closed head-injured subjects: comparison of exercise apparatus in assessment of a physical conditioning program.
The data obtained in this study indicate that the treadmill and mechanical stairs are more suitable than the bicycle ergometer for assessing maximal exercise performance and improved physical fitness following a physical conditioning program is associated with an improvement in cardiovascular function.
Aerobic and neuromuscular training: effect on the capacity, efficiency, and fatigability of patients with traumatic brain injuries.
To assess the value of exercise training after traumatic brain injury (TBI), 14 sedentary adults with TBI performed a supervised circuit training program three times per week for 16 consecutive
Treadmill aerobic exercise training reduces the energy expenditure and cardiovascular demands of hemiparetic gait in chronic stroke patients. A preliminary report.
Six months of low-intensity treadmill endurance training produces substantial and progressive reductions in the energy expenditure and cardiovascular demands of walking in older patients with chronic hemiparetic stroke, suggesting that task-oriented aerobic exercise may improve functional mobility and the cardiovascular fitness profile in this population.
