Patients admitted to the in-patient rehabilitation center with a diagnosis of stroke will be recruited into the study. The participants will wear two activity monitors (one commercial grade and one research grade) for the duration of their rehab stay. Data from the monitors will be correlated with rehab outcomes, therapy units billed, and length of stay.
- Activity monitors Other
Intervention Desc: activity monitors are worn on the wrist, much like a watch. Data from the activity monitors will be downloaded once a week and at discharge. Normal hospital and therapy activities will not be altered.
This study will include only people with a diagnosis of stroke who have been admitted to the in-patient rehabilitation facility "Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging & Rehabilitation" in Naples, FL. The side of the stroke, the type of the stroke, or a history of prior stroke are not considerations. The study is intended to be very clinically focused to better understand the activity level of the population seen at the facility. This study is purposely not controlling the population to a very narrow presentation so that the results will speak directly to the facility and their outcomes
