Independence Functions of Stroke Patients with "Gait" Exercise
Methods: A quasi experimental with pretest-postest group design was used in this study. Thirty four patients were selected by using non probability sampling (consecutive sampling tehnigue) as the sample of the study. Fourteen days of exercise gait program were given to the patient. An evaluation to the result of the program was conducted after fourteen days by measuring functional self care of the subjects.
Result: The statistical analysis showed that the average of the stroke patiens functional self care is significantly after the treatment (p=0.000). There was a relationship between patients age and the functional selfcare (p=0.000) and there was no relationship between sex and the functional self care (p=0.148). There was also no relationship between risk factor the functional self care (p=0.13).
Conclusion: This study recommended the use of exercise gait to improve functional self care of stroke patients in order to improve their ability to do daily living activities.
