Efficacy of treatment with a kinaesthetic ability training device on balance and mobility after stroke: a randomized controlled study

The objective of this study was to investigate whether the addition of a kinaesthetic ability training device could enhance the effect of a conventional rehabilitation programme on balance and mobility in hemiparetic patients late after stroke.  The control group participated in a conventional rehabilitation programme. The experimental group participated in balance training with a kinaesthetic ability training device in addition to a conventional rehabilitation programme for four weeks, five days a week.

Kinaesthetic ability training in addition to a conventional rehabilitation programme is effective in improving balance late after stroke. However, this improvement is not reflected in individual functional status.
