Trial Description

The objective of the present study is to evaluate the effectiveness of two home-based ergonomic intervention programs compared to a control group on the quality of life of caregivers of post-stroke patients

Detailed Description

Stroke is a neurological pathology that can cause functional problems and an impairment to perform activities of daily living at home.
For this reason, these patients need the support of a caregiver. Caregivers of post-stroke patients often have also problems with their quality of life because of the care that they must provide. These problems appear mainly during the support tasks in the activities performed at the patient's home.
The objective of the present study is to evaluate the effectiveness of two home-based ergonomic intervention programs compared to a control group on the quality of life of caregivers of post-stroke patients
