Repetitive task training (RTT) involves the active practice of task-specific motor activities and is a component of current therapy approaches in stroke rehabilitation.1
Primary objective is to determine whether RTT improves upper limb function/reach and lower limb function/balance in adults after stroke.
Secondary objectives are (1) to determine the effect of RTT on secondary outcome measures, including activities of daily living, global motor function, quality of life/health status, and adverse events, (2) to determine the factors that could influence primary and secondary outcome measures, including the effect of dose of task practice, type of task (whole therapy, mixed, or single task), and timing of the intervention and type of intervention.
