Abstract

Stroke is a significant medical condition and the significant inception of baffling longstanding inability everywhere in the world. Enduring over 24 hours or causing demise and the reason must be of a vascular starting point to affirm the stroke diagnosis. So the present study aims to the effectiveness of Dual-Task Exercise Training on Gait, Balance and walking speed among Stroke patient at Saveetha Medical College and Hospital. A quantitative approach with Pre-Experimental research with one group pre-test post-test design adopted to conduct the study among 30 antenatal mothers who were selected by non--probability purposive sampling technique. The semi-structured interview method was used to collect the demographical variables among stroke patient, and the patient’s balance and gait pattern were assessed by using the Tinetti Assessment Scale. The results of the study show that in the pre-test, the mean value is 17.7%, and the standard deviation is 3.333. And in post-test, the mean value is 19.866, and the standard deviation is 2.75. The mean difference between pre and post-test is 15.27. This study proves Effectiveness of Dual-Task Exercise Training on Gait, Balance and Walking speed among Stroke patient is effective method to prevent and to improve the Gait, Balance and Walking speed among stroke patient and also it helps the stroke patient to improve to the knowledge and to provide the better quality of life to stroke patient.
