Apraxia is widely used to describe one of the more disabling deficits following left strokes. The role of rehabilitation in treating apraxic stroke patients remains unclear.

Abstract

Apraxia is widely used to describe one of the more disabling deficits following left strokes. The role of rehabilitation in treating apraxic stroke patients remains unclear. This systematic review was conducted to study the impacts of various rehabilitation interventions on the limb apraxia post-stroke. PubMed, SCOPUS, PEDro, CINAHL, MEDLINE, REHABDATA, and Web of Science were searched for the experimental studies that investigated the effects of the rehabilitation interventions on apraxia in patients with stroke. The methodological quality was rated using the Physiotherapy Evidence Database scale (PEDro). Six studies met our inclusion criteria in this systematic review. Four were randomized controlled trials, pilot (n¼1), and case study (n¼1). The scores on the PEDro scale ranged from two to eight, with a median of seven. The results showed some evidence for the effects of strategy training and gesture training interventions on the cognitive functions, motor activities, and activities of daily livings outcomes poststroke. The preliminary findings showed that the effects of the strategy training and the gesture training on apraxia in patients with stroke are promising. Further randomized controlled trials with long-term follow-ups are strongly needed.
