ABSTRACT:
Purpose: This study investigates the effect of ankle joint strategy exercise and visual feedback training on proprioception and balance ability in stroke patients. Materials and Methods: 26 stroke patients were divided evenly at random into a visual feedback group(VFG) (n=13) and a visual disuse group(VDG) (n=13). For the ankle strategy exercise, the intervention session lasted 30 minutes and each session ran 3 times a week, for 6 weeks. Depending on the absence and presence of visual feedback, a pre- and post-intervention measurement was gathered for the proprioception test and balance ability. The proprioception test measured the angle of the knee joint with the subject blindfolded. The Berg Balance Scale (BBS) was used to measure balance ability. Results: For the proprioception test, there was no statistically significant difference. For the BBS measuring balance ability, there was a significant increase post-intervention (p<.05). Conclusion: During ankle strategy exercise, it is slightly more effective to apply visual feedback training in order to improve proprioception and balance ability. In is necessary for future studies to expand upon the topic of visual feedback.
