Effect of Modified Shoe with Motor Relearning Programme on Timed Up and Go Test Values and Gait Parameters in Chronic Stroke Patients: Comparative Study
Keywords:Chronic Stroke, Motor Relearning Program, Timed Up and Go Test, Gait Parameters.
Background: Hemiplegia secondary to stroke contributes to problems associated with standing and walking.
Hemiplegic patients suffer from poor balance, slow walking, and weak muscles. Shoe modification and foot orthoses
can play an important role in the nonsurgical management of foot and ankle pathology. Therapeutic footwear may
be used to treat patients with diabetes, arthritis, neurologic conditions, traumatic injuries, congenital deformities,
and sports-related injuries. These modalities may improve patient gait and increase the level of ambulation.
Aims and objectives of the study: To analyse the effect of modified shoe with motor relearning programme on
Timed Up and Go test values and gait parameters of chronic stroke patients.
Data Analysis and Results: Pre intervention values of Timed Up and Go test (TUG) and gait parameters were
homogenous between control and experimental groups with p≥0.05 and post intervention values of TUG and gait
parameters were statistically significant improvement in experimental group where shoe modification with motor
relearning program with p≤0.05
Conclusion: It was concluded that Modified Shoe with Motor Relearning Programme had statistically significant
improvement in the Timed Up and Go
