A Step Activity Monitoring Program Improves Real World Walking Activity Post Stroke

A Step Activity Monitoring Program Improves Real World Walking Activity Post Stroke

Initiatives -
The purpose of this study was to examine whether the walking activity of persons with stroke could be increased through participation in a step activity monitoring program and to assess whether this occurred through a change in the structure of walking activity. Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.

Data Collection Event
Sixteen individuals living with chronic stroke (>6 months post-stroke) wore a StepWatch Activity Monitor (SAM) and completed a four-week goal centered activity monitoring program. Descriptors of step activity were averaged across baseline and the last week of monitoring, and were used to analyze the changes. Descriptors of step activity included: steps per day, bouts per day, steps per bout, total time walking per day, and the number of short (<40 steps), medium (41-500 steps), and long (>500 steps) walking bouts.
