Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to clarify the relationship between nighttime sleep and effectiveness of inpatient rehabilitation for stroke patients during convalescence. Fifteen patients participated. Nighttime sleep was measured by actigraph recording. Actual sleep time was significantly correlated with discharge motor Functional Independence Measure (FIM) score and FIM efficiency. Wake after sleep onset (WASO) time was significantly correlated with length of stay. Sleep efficiency was significantly correlated with discharge motor FIM score. Our study showed a relationship between nighttime sleep and effectiveness of inpatient rehabilitation during convalescence after stroke.
