Trial Description

A lot of patients suffer the balance and gait disorders after stroke. Many rehabilitation therapies have been provided to improve the balance and gait function in stroke patients. However, most rehabilitation therapies are performed in only hospitals, in spite of the difficulty of moving from home to hospitals for stroke patients. Home-based smart rehabilitation system (Uincare®, D-gate Co.) can provide the specific rehabilitation training program to stroke patients in their home. This study aims to investigate the effects of the home-based exercise program with smart rehabilitation system on balance and gait functions in stroke patients.

Detailed Description

The total 100 patients with stroke will be divided into each the intervention group and the control group. The intervention group will be provided the home-based smart rehabilitation system for 4 weeks, and the control group will be educated the conventional home rehabilitation exercise at once. The immediate effects of the home-based smart rehabilitation system on the balance and gait function will be assessed at 4 weeks after exercise and the long-term carry-over effects will be also assesed at 4 weeks after cessation of exercise.
