The objective of the IMPACT study was to investigate the effects of a simple walking intervention on patients admitted to a rehabilitation unit after stroke.

Patients were recruited in the control phase (15 for each site) and this phase provided key data on the feasibility of recruitment, site suitability and quantify the level of usual activity at the sites.

Following the completion of the control phase, 15 patients were recruited in the intervention phase.

In addition to the objectives of the control phase, the intervention phase also provided data on the adherence to a simple walking intervention, which was developed in an earlier development study. Once completed, data from the pilot study will be used to design a larger study.

Primary endpoint:

1. To determine the feasibility of recruitment

2. To determine adherence to a simple intervention designed to improve patients walking after stroke.
