1. Both rapid movement therapy and conventional balance training improved overall balance performance and lower limb motor function among stroke survivors.
2. Rapid movement training provided better balance recovery reaction in terms of stepping displacement.
3. However, the effect was not sustained at the 3-month follow-up. Therefore, regular training may be needed to retain the effects for a better balance recovery reaction.
