Purpose: The purpose of this study was to review the effectiveness of aerobic training in increasing endurance in subacute stroke patients.
Methods: A review of available research was selected. Electronic databases searched online were Medline- Pubmed, Cumulative Index in Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) and Excerpta Medica Database (EMBASE).
Results: Aerobic training appears to have a positive effect on endurance and oxygen consumption.
Conclusion: Further research studying the effect of endurance training in subacute stroke patients, is required in order to reach a clearer image of the effect of aerobic training in stroke patients in the subacute phase.
