Effect of Physical Therapy on Joint Angle of Hemiplegic Patients During Standing-up Motion


Stroke patients improve motor function by the rehabilitation of the physical therapist (PT). We analyzed the effect of rehabilitation intervention on standing-up motion of stroke patients. We measured the standing-up motion using the motion capture system and calculated the joint angle based on the body trajectory. The results show that patients with PT’s intervention do not bend their upper body as much as patients do without PT. This is caused by PT intervention which teaches patients the timing of lifting their buttocks.
