Abstract

Many countries lack effective community-based rehabilitation programs despite the increasing numbers of stroke survivors. Therefore, we have conducted a pilot investigation in South Korea of a newly constructed community-based intervention program combining rhythmic music and specialized rehabilitation movement. The 8-week program was based on rhythmic auditory stimulation (RAS) theory, which uses rhythm to enhance stroke survivors' movements. Thirty-three stroke survivors were randomized into one of two groups: The experimental group (n = 16) carried out an 8-week RAS music-movement exercise intervention; the control group (n = 17) received referral information about available usual care services. Participants in the experimental group gained a wider range of motion and flexibility, had more positive moods, and reported increased frequency and quality of interpersonal relationships.
