Abstract

It is a life-changing moment to experience someone suffer a stroke. A stroke occurs when an individual’s blood supply to the brain is blocked or reduced, preventing brain tissue from receiving oxygen and nutrients. There are three types of strokes: Ischemic Stroke, Hemorrhagic Stroke, and Transient Ischemic Attack. In this research I will be developing an FITT-VPP program that would best accommodate stroke patients. Because strokes have a major impact on the brain it is significant to determine if physical exercise enhances cognition following stroke as well. Key findings of the research determine that aerobic training can boost an individual’s exercise ability and walking after stroke and that aerobic exercise rehabilitation reduces energy expenditure of hemiparetic gait in older stroke patients. By discussing the benefits of aerobic training, evaluating the effects of physical activity on stroke patients, and analyzing how neuromuscular exercises can affect one’s ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) it would sufficiently reinforce the development of the FITT-VPP program.
