Background: It has been contended that weight asymmetry and impaired balance function may be a consequence of a learned disuse of the paretic leg chronic hemiparetic stroke individuals. Purpose of the study: To determine whether the taskspecific step up exercises would lead to greater improvements of spatio-temporal gait parameters of chronic hemiparetic stroke individuals. Methods: 30 individuals, who had a stroke for more than 6 months and able to ambulate independently, were included in the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Comparison of Dual Task and Task Oriented Training Programme on Gait in Chronic Stroke
TLDR
Values of gait parameters between the groups were significant which showed that task oriented training is more effective than dual task training to improve gait in chronic stroke.
Spatial asymmetry of post-stroke hemiparetic gait: assessment and recommendations for physical rehabilitation.
TLDR
The study demonstrated asymmetry of step length and foot rotation angle during walking of post-stroke hemiparetic individuals and highlighted the potential of the footprint and SI methods as objective and easy to apply tools suitable for the assessment of symmetry of spatial gait parameters in clinical and rehabilitation settings.
Comparison of isokinetic strengthening with functional strengthening of lower limb and their effect on gait in hemiparesis due to stroke.
TLDR
Isokinetic strengthening of lower limb is more effective than functional strengthening in improving peak torque of hip-knee flexor and extensor muscles and six-minute walk test in post stroke hemiparetic persons.
Efficacy of Trunk Rehabilitation and Balance Training On Trunk Control, Balance and Gait in Post Stroke Hemiplegic Patients: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
It is concluded that trunk rehabilitation exercises and balance training are effective in improving trunk control, balance and gait in post stroke hemiplegic patients.

Gait outcomes after additional backward walking training in patients with stroke: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
This study demonstrated that asymmetric gait pattern in patients post stroke could be improved from receiving additional backward walking therapy.
Quantitative analysis of gait pattern in hemiparetic patients.
TLDR
The findings suggest that areas of emphasis for physical therapy of hemiparetic patients should include increasing stride length and decreasing step width and internal rotation of foot, particularly on the affected side.
Stepping before standing: hip muscle function in stepping and standing balance after stroke
TLDR
In ambulant patients with stroke, a normal pattern of activation of hemiparetic muscles is seen in stepping whereas the response of these muscles to a perturbation while standing remains grossly impaired and is compensated by increased activity of the contralateral muscles.
Improvements in Speed-Based Gait Classifications Are Meaningful
TLDR
Function and quality-of-life SIS scores after treatment were significantly higher among survivors who achieved a favorable transition compared with those who did not, indicating a gait velocity gain that results in a transition to a higher class of ambulation results in better function and quality of life, especially for household ambulators.
Evaluation of a home-based exercise and training programme to improve sit-to-stand in patients with chronic stroke
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a home-based task-specific exercise and training protocol for STS can induce improved performance of STS and increase walking speed more than one year after stroke.
Work and power in gait of stroke patients.
TLDR
The results suggest interdependence between the limbs and between muscle groups of the same limb; a need for further research is indicated.
Classification of walking handicap in the stroke population.
TLDR
The results of this study offer a quantitative method of relating the social disadvantage of stroke patients to the impairment and disability sustained and the measurement of therapeutic outcome in relation to the social advantage for the patient would allow more efficient standardization of treatment and services.
