Virtual Physical Activity Seated Exercise (V-PASE)
The Virtual Physical Activity Seated Exercise (V-PASE) study is an online seated exercise study that is completed in the comfort of your own home!
The purpose of this study is to:
- determine if an online seated exercise program can improve balance, walking capacity, quality of life, blood sugar levels and blood cholesterol levels in those with stroke, and
- determine the suitability of the online seated exercise program in those with stroke.
All exercise sessions will be delivered by a trained instructor and exercises will be completed in a chair.
Restricted or limited access to community and outpatient rehabilitation programs can impact the health of those living with a long term stroke. Although research has shown that exercises completed in a chair can improve upper and lower body function, blood pressure and blood sugar levels, no study has investigated these effects when delivered online.
Thus, the V-PASE study aims to investigate the effects of delivering a online seated exercise program balance and walking capacity in those with a stroke and mobility impairment.
