Recovery of Functional Mobility after Stroke

Functional mobility and physical activity are often profoundly affected after stroke. As a group, stroke survivors are more physically inactive than even the most sedentary older adults.  Lack of physical activity has serious consequences in persons with stroke, including an increased risk of recurrent stroke, developing other diseases and mortality.  This talk will focus on our current understanding of factors that can influence mobility and activity recovery and the impact of rehabilitation.
