Stroke is a major cause of spastic paresis. We conducted a randomized controlled trial. The intervention arm performed GSRC and the control arm underwent Conventional Rehabilitation sessions. Initial and final assessments took place ten weeks apart. Outcome measures included 10 meters walking test at comfortable and fast speed, passive range of motion (XV1), angle of catch (XV3, Tardieu) and active range of motion (XA). We used Student T test and Mann Whitney test for statistical analysis. At the end of intervention, participants undergoing GSRC presented greater improvement of comfortable and fast walking speed about 40% and 11%, respectively. Compared with controls, the intervention group reported higher reduction of coefficient of shortening with a significant difference between the two arms (p=0,047).
GSRC improved soft tissue contracture and walking speed more than Conventional Rehabilitation in patients with chronic post stroke spastic paresis.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1 - evaluate the impact of Guided Self-Rehabilitation Contracts (GSRC) on gait of patients with chronic post stroke spastic paresis.
