This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To assess whether additional exercise therapy has an impact on recovery following stroke when compared with routine exercise therapy.
The specific objectives of this review are twofold:
- To examine the impact of additional exercise therapy time on functional recovery following stroke by reviewing RCTs that assess the effects of additional exercise therapy when compared with routine exercise therapy.
- To determine a minimum threshold of additional exercise therapy time provided to the experimental group below which no clinically relevant benefit is observed.
