Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, July 25, 2015: Cerebrovascular disease is a major global concern. The individuals with stroke would suffer from disease associated symptoms which influence their functioning in everyday life. These symptom clusters were usually known to be sharing similar underlying mechanisms. It is clear that the development of effective stroke rehabilitation involves interdisciplinary team approach to manage physical, social, cognitive, and psychological functioning in this population. Tai Chi is a low intense aerobic exercise, characterized by continuous movements that embrace the mind, body, and spirit. Tai Chi addresses the integration and balance of mind and body using the fundamental principles of slow, smooth, and continuous movement control, and the transfer of body weight while maintaining an upright and relaxed posture. The characteristics of seated Tai Chi shares the common Tai Chi principles while being modified to adjust the movements for wheelchair bound patients. The purpose of this symposium, consisting of three sessions, is to present the scientific evidence for the use of Tai Chi as a new approach of stroke rehabilitation. The first session will present symptom clusters of stroke patients by rehabilitation stages, followed by Introduction of seated Tai Chi as a new approach for stroke rehabilitation, and finally the last session will present the pilot study on the effect of seated Tai Chi on physical functioning among individuals with stroke. Audience participatory session to practice together few movements of seated Tai Chi and Q&A session will be followed at the end of the symposium.
