Description: How extensive is loss of strength after stroke in the upper and lower limbs? How does this loss of strength impact activity limitations? From paralysed muscles through to mild weakness – what can we do to increase strength, and how does improved strength impact activity?
Learning objectives: By the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to;
- Describe the prevalence and extent of loss of strength after stroke and the implications for activity limitations
- Describe the evidence and practical strategies for increasing strength after stroke, from extreme through to mild weakness
