TASK program

Welcome to the TASK program

TASK is a post-stroke exercise program that is guided by videos.

This program involves the practice of four everyday tasks:

  • sitting
  • standing
  • stepping
  • standing up

TASK was developed by a team of physiotherapists at Macquarie University, led by Dr Kate Scrivener.

It was designed to improve and/or maintain strength and mobility, as well as encouraging people after stroke to be more physically active.

The aim of TASK is to assist people after stroke to exercise at home, on an ongoing basis.
