Brief Summary:
There are several factors influencing on balance and movement in individuals with stroke, such as previous stroke, age, bowel incontinence, visuospatial problem. However, those factors involving in postural control and voluntary movement were studied in subacute and chronic phase of stroke, but not in the acute period. The aim of the study is to determine factors for postural control and voluntary movement in individuals with acute stroke and then follow at the first, third, and sixth month.
