Upright pedalling to drive recovery early after stroke

What are the beneficial effects?

Rehab intervention early post stroke is vital whilst the brain is most responsive to motor input to facilitate neuroplasticity and recovery. Repetition of functional tasks including walking is key, however significant paresis limits walking practice.

This study assessed upright pedalling (UP) on subjects post stroke with considerable paresis to determine its rehab potential with pedalling considered a repetitive functional activity requiring phasic muscle activity.
