This study took about 1700 people in 42 studies and put all their data to determine how much people move on average after a stroke.
And it’s not pretty.
Four hundred six people in 10 studies who were in the subacute phase took an average of about 5500 steps per day, while about 1300 chronic phase people in 32 studies took an average of 4000 steps per day.
That’s about half the number of daily steps of age-matched healthy individuals.
So the people that have a cardiac problem (a stroke is a after all rooted in cardiac problems) are not reaching anywhere near the recommended daily step count of 10,000 steps. Given the healthy people either….
What are we going to do about that? What are you doing about that? Think about it.
