A CPSR-funded study to determine the appropriate dose of aerobic exercise to improve recovery from stroke has been featured on CTV news.
The study (we call it the DOSE trial) involves CPSR researchers in BC, Alberta, and Ontario.
CPSR researcher Dr. Sean Dukelow, Alberta Health Services stroke specialist, says the study looks to prove that stroke patients can handle increased activity and the exercise will boost their recovery.
“We expect individuals receiving more, higher intensity exercise will have better outcomes,” explains Dr. Dukelow. “They’ll walk faster, they’ll have better cardiovascular outcomes, they may even have better cognitive outcomes and their mood will be better at the end of the study.”
