Repetitive sit-to-stand training after stroke

Does it aid in improving sit-to-stand ability in people who are unable to stand up independently after stroke?

After stroke, many people have difficulty standing up and walking independently, due to motor impairments such as weakness and poor coordination. Loss of the ability to stand up can result in profound disability and increased burden of care.

Since standing up independently is essential for reducing disability and burden of care, it is important to understand if additional repetitive sit-to-stand training improves the ability to stand up independently after stroke.
