Study Summary

The proposed pilot study will explore the feasibility and preliminary impacts of a 6-week at-home group delivered inspiratory muscle strength training (IMST) exercise intervention on resilience in young stroke survivors. Resilience Exercise Training (Res-ET) intervention on young stroke survivors will assess feasibility of Res-ET and preliminary changes in resilience on young stroke survivors using a quasi-experimental one-group pretest-posttest design within the RE-AIM framework. The connection between resilience and exercise has not been clearly identified in literature, and there is no literature supporting IMST on resilience in young stroke survivors. The Res-ET intervention in young stroke survivors may serve as a pragmatic and novel approach to increase resilience while also increasing physiological and psychosocial well-being of young stroke survivors. Aim 1. Test the feasibility (recruitment, retention, participation, and acceptability) of Res-ET intervention in a sample of young stroke survivors having had a stroke between the age of 18 - 50, AND who experienced a stroke within the last 6 months to 55 years of age AND have been cleared by a physician to participate in IMST exercise. Aim 2. Assess the efficacy potential of Res-ET intervention on resilience, and preliminary direction and magnitude of psychosocial and physiological outcomes in young stroke survivors pre/post Res-ET intervention. Psychosocial outcome measures consist of; positive affect, self-efficacy, meaning/purpose, physical function, fatigue, and social satisfaction. Physiological outcome measures consist of, pulmonary function, physical activity, biometrics, and daily movement. Aim 3. Collect qualitative data to assess acceptability and usability of Res-ET. Data will be collected through interviews and questionnaires about Res-ET feasibility, perceived utility, and satisfaction of the intervention. Perceived changes to resilience, functional capacity/movement (ADL's), and well-being will be recorded, transcribed, and thematically coded
