Abstract

Task specific practice has been recommended as a treatment approach in individuals with stroke for last 20 years. The aim of this review was to discover the extent of research into task specific training and to compile a summary of the findings in order to improve the knowledge to date for the physiotherapist. The review found that task-oriented circuit training can alleviate deficit of the lower extremities caused by stroke leading to improvement in standing balance and an increase in speed and endurance during walking. In addition, the Accelerated Skill Acquisition Program (ASAP) for upper extremities, which encourages individuals with stroke to participate in specific activities can alleviate impaired movement of the hand and arm, increasing speed during reach and grasp. Task specific training for both lower and upper extremities are recommended for individuals with stroke to relearn movement with clear goals. Task progression is also needed in close collaboration with movement analysis. Finally, repetition and intensity are necessary specific to the needs of each patient as is motivation to improve functional activity in individuals with stroke
