It has been shown that patients with stroke
have been shown to have low endurance during exercise, likely due to both the event and also as a secondary reaction to forced inactivity. It is also known that there is a positive connection between aerobic capacity and functional performance (Katz-Leurer et al. 2003). This module will focus on aerobic exercise for people who are in the chronic phase (longer than 6 months post stroke
) of recovery.
