Palavras-chave:Stroke, Foot position, Sit- to- stand
Background: Sit to stand is one of the functional tasks that may have been altered in post stroke hemiparetic patients. This transfer may have been altered affected by various extrinsic conditions, among them the position of the feet. Objective: systematize the knowledge about the influence of foot placement in the performance of standing up in post stroke hemiparetic patients. Method: a non systematic review in the period of March to September 2014 was performed, including original articles published from January 2002 to September 2014. Results: 35 articles were found, 8 met the inclusion criteria and were included, 6 of them of observational feature, 1 controlled biomechanical experiment and 1 randomized clinical trial. Conclusion: the findings suggest that the choice of foot position interferes in the standing up performance. This aspect should be considered for the evaluation and treatment, allowing the control of variables that interferes on the performance of this task.
