Samenvatting

Stroke is the second major cause of death and disability worldwide. One of the common motor disabilities in hemiplegic stroke patients is drop foot. Objective: The purpose of the systematic review is to establish whether AFO or FES is more effective in improving comfortable walking speed and functional mobility from acute to chronic stroke rehabilitation. Methods: Cochrane, PubMed, PEDro, CINAHL and Google Scholar were searched to obtain the randomized, controlled trials. Two authors independently extracted data and assessed the methodological quality of the studies. Results: Nine articles were included to the pooled analysis, out of which two articles reached a score of 7; three articles a score of 6; and four articles a score of 5. Walking speed was assessed in eight studies, and functional mobility in four studies. Discussion and Conclusions: Although FES shows more promising effects compared to AFO in improving the quality of life of a stroke patient, by means of walking speed and functional mobility, the effects were limited in the context of trials.
