High Intensity Interval Training POst-STroke (HIIT-POST)

Stroke survivors’ and health professionals’ views

Researchers from the Australian Catholic University are looking for people to give their opinions on High Intensity Interval Training after stroke, as part of a research study exploring the barriers and motivators to High Intensity Interval Training.

  • High Intensity Interval Training is a form of heart health exercise (e.g., bike, treadmill, boxing).
  • It may be helpful to improve the brain’s ability to learn things after a stroke
  • Researchers are unsure why people are not engaging in High Intensity Interval Training after their stroke.

The study involves a 10-minute questionnaire, and an optional 30-minute interview. There is a link at the end of the questionnaire to express your interest in the interview.

We are looking for survivors of stroke and for health professionals (allied health assistants, exercise physiologists, GPs, physiotherapists, specialist physicians) to give their thoughts on High Intensity Interval Training:
