Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Kessler researchers test trunk-strengthening program for hemiplegia post stroke

(Kessler Foundation) Although poor trunk control after stroke is associated with longer hospital stays, increased falls, and poorer function, little research has been done. 'This pilot study enables us to test a trunk-strengthening protocol using the AllCore360ยบ in individuals with hemiplegia to examine underlying neuromuscular mechanisms and measure effects on posture, balance, and walking ability,' explained Dr. Pilkar. 'If preliminary findings are promising, further studies of this protocol may be warranted.'
