Abstract

After a stroke, people characteristically experience a loss of function. Reviewers (English et al., 2017) provide evidence-based insights into the value of instigating CCT into post-stroke rehabilitation. The review examines the effectiveness of CCT for people who have experienced stroke. The meta-analysis includes seventeen trials comprising 1297 participants. Results demonstrate that CCT is a worthwhile intervention to establish and support mobility post-stroke. The primary effect of CCT was to improve walking capacity, measured by a walk test. CCT improves gaining independence in activities of daily living.
