Abstract

Stroke may result in decreased trunk muscle strength and limited trunk coordination, frequently determining loss of autonomy due to the trunk impairment. Furthermore, sitting balance has been repeatedly identified as an important predictor of motor and functional recovery after stroke. Given the importance of trunk it is therefore mandatory that validated tools be available to assess its performance. To perform a systematic review of clinical measurement tools to assess trunk performance after stroke.
