Motor Imagery Training on Muscle Strength and Gait Performance in Ambulant Stroke Subjects: A Randomized Clinical Trial
50%-65% of stroke survivors have residual motor deficits; principal among them is hemi paretic gait that limits mobility, increases the risk of falls and promoting sedentary life style. Increased strength in the lower extremity muscles has been shown to be associated with improvements in walking performance. Recently Motor Imagery training (MIT) are enhancing motor learning, neural reorganization and cortical activation in stroke patients. However, efficacy MIT involving lower extremity mobility tasks are limited in stroke rehabilitation.
