Effectiveness of Motor Rehabilitation Bundle on Motor Functions and Functional Ability of Upper Extremity among Patients with Stroke

Anju Rachel [4]


Abstract: The present study investigated the effectiveness of motor rehabilitation bundle on motor functions and functional ability of upper extremity among patients with stroke admitted in a tertiary care hospital, Kottayam. A quantitative approach with quasi experimental pre test post test control group design was used for the study. The conceptual framework Betty Neumann?s system model theoretically supported the study. Sixty patients with stroke were selected using non probability purposive sampling technique. The data were collected using socio personal and clinical data sheet, upper extremity motor function assessment scale and upper extremity functional index scale. Pre test was conducted on the second day of admission. Motor rehabilitation bundle starts on the 2ndday of admission and continued for 21 days. Post test was conducted on the 21st day after discharge during follow up visit. The effectiveness of motor rehabilitation bundle was computed using Mann Whitney U test. The study result showed that the U value obtained for motor function and functional ability scores of patients with stroke in the control and experimental group was significant at 0.05 level signifying the effectiveness of motor rehabilitation bundle in improving motor functions and functional ability among patients with stroke. The study revealed that there was a strong positive correlation between motor functions and functional ability (? =0.61). Study revealed that association of motor functions and functional ability among patients with stroke with selected variables was significant at 0.01 level signifying associations with respect to muscle strength, angle of flexion and angle of extension of affected extremity.
