Abstract

EVALUATION OF PHASE IV CARDIAC REHABILITATION EXERCISE TRAINING IN STROKE SURVIVORS

School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, University of Kent

Aims To evaluate health and functional fitness parameters of stroke survivors participating in a Phase IV style cardiac rehabilitation circuit class.

Methods 25 stroke survivors (male = 11; female = 14; mean age 59.5 ± 14.3years) with at least 3-months engagement in a weekly Phase IV-style circuit exercise class completed anthropometric (body mass index [BMI] and waist circumference), health (resting blood pressure), and functional capacity measurements (6-minute shuttle walking distance [6MWD], timed up and go [TUG] and bilateral grip strength [GS]).

Conclusion Circuit-based exercise training offers considerable health and functional capacity benefits to stroke survivors potentially helping to promote recovery, QoL and reduce the disability burden.
