Effect of task specific circuit training on Gait parameters and mobility in stroke survivors
Objective of the study was to investigate effects of task specific circuit gait training to improve gait parameters and mobility among sub-acute and chronic stroke patients. A randomized control trial was conducted on stroke survivors of either gender being capable of standing 10 seconds and having 2-4 score on Rankin Modified Scale. Sample comprised of 30 participants randomly assigned into two groups. Training was given for a session of 40-50 minutes for 3-4 days/week for six weeks. Timed get up and go test (TUG), Cadence, Step Length and Step Width assessed measures of concern. The sample included 16 males and 14 females with mean age of 54.10 ± 10.10 years. After six weeks, significant improvement was recorded in TUG (p=0.014). Cadence (p=0.001), step length (p<0.001) and step width (p=0.009) were also significantly improved. Circuit gait training improves mobility and gait in stroke patients.
