Sit-to-stand Training in Stroke Patient

Completed

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Background: Manual lifting is a common method to train the sit-to-stand, in which repetition is important. Alternate training regimen by mechanical device may be opted to avoid staff injury.
Objective: The purpose of the study is to investigate the repetitive mechanical training to improve the independence of standing up.
Methods: A total of 38 participants were randomised into two groups. Both groups had no lesser than 100 repetitions or 10 minutes/day of training sessions. Berg Balance Scale (BBS), Modified Rivermead Mobility Index (MRMI), Sit-and-Reach test (SRT), Five-Repetition Sit-to-Stand Test (5XSST), Sit-to-Stand Test from the Balance MasterĀ® (SST) were assessed in baseline, after 5 days and 10 days of training.
