Abstract

The presented dissertation aims to develop a specialized methodology in kinesitherapy adapted for home application in patients with residual hemiparesis after supratentorial stroke and to evaluate its effect on functional recovery in 67 patients divided into two groups. The effect of kinesitherapy was assessed by a Test for severity of motor limitations; Scale assessment of muscle tone; Test for functional independence; Test for balance and gait – cadence and speed; Active orthostatic test. The aim of the specialized kinesitherapeutic methodology applied in the experimental group is to improve the functionality of patients with ischemic stroke in the chronic period. It is based on the fundamental principles of modern neurorehabilitation, individually tailored, intensive and focused on the specific patient’s needs; to be realized with the active participation of the patient and his family, with prolonged daily practice. The dissertation enriches the scientific, theoretical and applied research knowledge in the field of kinesitherapy and its impact in the chronic period with unilateral ischemic stroke. The results (original and confirmatory) give reasons to assert that specialized methodology is suitable for wide application in kinesitherapeutic practice.
