Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This study focused on the extent to which activity demands limit participation in high cognitively- and high physically-demanding activities. Various assessments of participation, fatigue, cognition, and motor ability were included. Results showed that perceived physical ability and cognitive ability were correlated with retention of these activities, but that fatigue had little effect. This study helps to better understand how activity demands relate of participation poststroke.
