I’m running a post doc project investigating long-term physical activity and function after stroke. We explore important factors for persons after stroke such as objectively measured physical activity/sedentary behaviour, mobility, activities of daily living, life quality, fatigue, depression, sleep and cognition. In addition we will look at variables such as age, gender, stroke severity, disability and general function for these persons the first week after stroke and investigate how these variables contribute to activity and function four years later.
We completed the data collection in November 2015 and the analyses are about to start.
Keywords for my research interests: physical activity, sedentary behaviour, gait rehabilitation, stroke, neurorehabilitation, activity monitoring, gait analysis, kinematic sensors used in gait analysis and movement science
