Study compared the effect and effectiveness of task specific strength training (TSST) and resistance training (RT) on strength and function in hemiparetic lower limb. After satisfying the inclusion criteria 30 patients were randomly assigned to group 1 (TSST) and group 2 (RT). Pre and post test scores were recorded using Timed up and go test (TUG) and hand held dynamometer (HHD) for lower limb to check function and muscle strength. After 4 weeks of intervention function and muscle strength were checked using TUG test and HHD for lower limb. The Results showed improvement in both groups and also showed increase in the strength and function in both the groups with improvement in TUG and HHD. So study concluded that both groups showed improvement in lower limb strength and function after 4 weeks of intervention but when compared, group 1 with task specific strength training showed better improvement than group 2 with resistance training.

Abstract


Study compared the effect and effectiveness of task specific strength training (TSST) and resistance training (RT) on strength and function in hemiparetic lower limb. After satisfying the inclusion criteria 30 patients were randomly assigned to group 1 (TSST) and group 2 (RT). Pre and post test scores were recorded using Timed up and go test (TUG) and hand held dynamometer (HHD) for lower limb to check function and muscle strength. After 4 weeks of intervention function and muscle strength were checked using TUG test and HHD for lower limb. The Results showed improvement in both groups and also showed increase in the strength and function in both the groups with improvement in TUG and HHD. So study concluded that both groups showed improvement in lower limb strength and function after 4 weeks of intervention but when compared, group 1 with task specific strength training showed better improvement than group 2 with resistance training.
