Stroke survivors have higher risks of falling compared to other healthy non-stroke adults. Stroke patients' balance can be trained by Kinect-based training that enable user friendly and interactive training.
- Balance training Procedure
Intervention Desc: Improvement of balance ability in stroke patients ARM 1: Kind: Experimental Label: Kinect based Rapid Movement Therapy Description: Kinect based Rapid Movement Therapy (RMT) training requires participants to move their limbs very rapidly to reach-to-grasp or step towards a virtual target appear suddenly on a screen, which is designed to their range of motion as well as response speed. ARM 2: Kind: Experimental Label: Conventional balance training Description: Conventional balance training involves some slow and low-impact muscle strengthening and mobilizing exercises.
