Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Stroke leads to high levels of sedentary behavior and may be associated with risk for recurrent stroke. The ABLE intervention was developed to reduce sedentary behavior by promoting engagement in meaningful occupations using a behavioral activation framework. This study examined the feasibility of the ABLE intervention among people with chronic stroke.
