A Community-Based Fitness and Mobility Exercise Program for Older Adults with Chronic Stroke Trial.

Completed

Phase N/A Results

Results

The FAME group appears to be beneficial for improving some of the physical activity problems in older adults living with stroke. Cardiorespiratory fitness, mobility, and paretic leg muscle strength had significant gains over the controls, while the femoral neck BMD was maintained in the intervention group, but declined significantly in the control group. There was no significant time-by-group interaction for any of the outcomes.
