Abstract

Background Task-oriented circuit training using a Multi-Activities workstation emphasises goal-oriented tasks practiced in a circuit or series in order to learn a new skill. It can be used for upper limb rehabilitation among stroke patients in a community setting, but there is currently very little evidence available regarding its use in this patient group and setting. This study aimed to explore the influence of task-oriented circuit training using a Multi-Activities workstation on upper limb function among community-dwelling individuals with chronic stroke. Methods A pre-test–post-test study was conducted involving 17 community-dwelling individuals with chronic stroke who were attending a stroke rehabilitation centre. Six weeks of task-oriented circuit training was given using a Multi-Activities workstation aimed to improve strength, range of motion and dexterity. Streamlined Wolf Motor Function Test and Chedoke Arm and Hand Activity Inventory were used to measure outcomes. Wilcoxon signed-rank test was used for data analysis. Results A total of 12 sessions of task-oriented circuit training using Multi-Activities workstations did not result in any statistically significant differences in outcome measures. Conclusions Task-oriented circuit training using the Multi-Activities workstation did not improve upper limb function in community-dwelling individuals with chronic stroke.
