Background: Stroke can cause damage to the motor and sensory pathways or affect their central integration leading to disorders of balance, posture and control of movement. Stroke patients suffer from various balance impairments and tend to bear more weight in the non-paretic leg. The aim of the study was to determine if the weight bearing asymmetry of stroke patients in standing is related to their ability to maintain balance when performing functional activities in standing.
