Experimental: Interactive video balance-based exercise
Fifteen participants in group A will undergo 30 minutes a day and 3 days a week interactive video balance-based exercise intervention for four weeks.
Behavioral: interactive video balance-based exercise
Interactive video balance-based exercise :10 minutes of warm up exercise, 30 minutes of Interactive video balance-based exercise and 5 minutes of cool down exercise.
Active Comparator: Conventional physiotherapy
Another 15 participants allocated to the group B will receive 30 minutes a day and 3 days a week conventional rehabilitation for four weeks.
Behavioral: Conventional physiotherapy
conventional physiotherapy: 10 minutes of warm up exercise, 30 minutes conventional physiotherapy and 5 minutes of cool down exercise. Conventional physiotherapy contains rolling, sitting, balance exercise, standing, overground walking, facilitation of the paretic limbs, and so on.
- Change of Berg Balance Scale (BBS) [ Time Frame: Measurement before and after intervention ( week 0 and at the end of week 4) in both groups ]Participants perform a series of 14 functional balance tasks, such as maintaining a quiet stance, sitting-to-stand, shifting weight and reaching, turning in place, standing on one leg, and maintaining a tandem stance.
- Change of Time Up Go test (TUG) [ Time Frame: Measurement before and after intervention ( week 0 and at the end of week 4) in both groups ]The TUG test is a quick, reliable, valid, and accurate method commonly used to test dynamic stability and functional mobility. In the test, participants stand up from a 46-cm-high armchair with back support, walk straight for 3 m, turn around, walk back to the chair, and sit down as quickly and safely as possible.
- Change of Modified Falls Efficacy Scale (MFES) [ Time Frame: Measurement before and after intervention ( week 0 and at the end of week 4) in both groups ]The MFES is a 14-item rating scale questionnaire that contains the original 10-activity Falls Efficacy Scale and 4 additional activities. It is used to assess confidence of not falling while performing daily activities.
- Change of Motricity Index (MI) [ Time Frame: Measurement before and after intervention ( week 0 and at the end of week 4) in both groups ]The MI reflects general muscle strength in persons with stroke.
- Change of Functional Ambulation Category (FAC) [ Time Frame: Measurement before and after intervention ( week 0 and at the end of week 4) in both groups ]The FAC is based on the required level of assistance during walking in individuals with stroke.
