Table 7 Motor impairment - movement control

From: The effects of increased dose of exercise-based therapies to enhance motor recovery after stroke: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Time-point Study Measure used Augmented therapy Standard therapy Mean difference
    Number subjects Mean (SD) Number subjects Mean (SD) Effect size [95% CI]
Outcome         
   6 weeks after start therapy Cooke Symmetry step time 19 18.8 (35.6) 15 28.6 (33.1) 9.7a [-32.9, 13.5]
   6 weeks after start therapy Cooke Symmetry step length 19 13.5 (15.8) 15 25.0 (36.6) 11.5a [-31.3, 8.3]
Follow-up 1         
   18 weeks after start therapy Cooke Symmetry step time 19 19.4 (29.9) 14 23.0 (23.5) 3.6a [-21.9, 14.6]
   18 weeks after start therapy Cooke Symmetry step length 19 23.7 (49.9) 14 12.3 (11.0) -11.4a [-11.8, 34.6]
  1. a = fixed effect model used; b = random effect model used; FU = Follow-up; * = = < 0.05
  2. Note: symmetry values represent difference from total symmetry therefore a higher value indicates a worse outcome.
