To improve lower limb muscle strength and mobility post stroke, there is a need for effective training METHODS This review summarises the effects of lower limb progressive resistance training ([PRT]; loads of 70% or more of the maximum strength) on muscle strength, muscle tone, gait performance and perceived participation after stroke. PRT is a safe and effective… CONTINUE READING
