Perturbation-based balance training improves balance responses in subacute persons with stroke

Takeaway

  • Perturbation-based balance training (PBBT) shows significant improvements in balance recovery performance in subacute persons with stroke (PwS) compared to weight shifting and gait training (WS>).

Why this matters

  • Inclusion of perturbation-based balance training during rehabilitation of PwS may improve reactive balance and balance confidence.
