stroke patient - June 3, 2018 5:01:20 PM

I have been treating a patient with a past medical history of CVA and subdural hematoma. Initially, the patient was dependent+ for transfers and non-ambulatory. Although the patient now requires Mod A for transfers and is able to ambulate short distances in the parallel bars with Max A, the patient’s progress has plateaued. Our team has been utilizing LE ther ex, recumbent bike, exercises to improve trunk control and functional reach, the standing frame, functional transfers, sit to stand transfers with assistance from the parallel bars, and ambulation in the parallel bars or with a RW with Max A x2. The rehab gym I work in is not equipped with a body weight supported treadmill. Aside from initiating e-stim with Triphasic PENS, what are some other treatment ideas to further progress this patient?
