The Effects of Task- Oriented Group Circuit Training on EEG for Chronic Stroke Patients


Background/Objectives: The purpose of this study was to invest the effect of task-oriented circuit training on EEG of α-wave and β wave for chronic stroke patients. Methods/Statistical Analysis: 30 chronic stroke patients were randomly divided into 2 Groups; Group Task-oriented Circuit training Group(GCG) and Individual task-oriented Circuit training Group(IGC). α and β wave were evaluated before and after the training, which consists of warm up, exercise and cool down 3 times/week for 6weeks. One-way ANOVA and paired t-testing were conducted to analysis and confirm the differences of the pre and post factors within each group. Findings: In the present result, the followings showed a statistically significant difference; α values for Fp1, Fp2, F3, F4, T3(p<.001)and β values for Fp1, F3(p<.05)between the groups, the Fp1, Fp2, F3, F4 of the GCG(p<.001)andF3, F4of the ICG(p<.001)at α values, Fp1, Fp2, F3, F4, T3, T4, P3,P4 of the GCC(p<.05) and Fp1, Fp2, F4, T3, T4, P3,P4of the IGC(p<.05) at β values. Improvement/Application: These findings indicate that group taskoriented circuit training can be effective in α-wave and β wave for chronic stroke patients
