DESIGN A secondary analysis of data obtained from a prospective, single-blind, randomized controlled intervention trial. SUBJECTS Sixty-three community-dwelling individuals (mean age = 65 years, age range = 50-87 years) with a chronic stroke (post-stroke duration: mean = 5.5 years, range = 1-28 years). METHODS Subjects were randomized into a leg exercise… CONTINUE READING
