A research assistant will visit the ASUs regularly to screen for eligible participants. He/she will review the medical records of all patients who had a stroke admitted, and approach the potentially eligible participants and explain to them and/or their relatives the study aim, objectives, intervention and data collection procedures. Participants will be asked to sign an informed consent form and will be given a participation card indicating their recruitment into the study. Then, the research assistant will record the participants’ demographic and clinical information. After the patients are discharged from the hospital, the research assistant will contact them and schedule a baseline assessment. Participants will be informed about video-taking during assessment of their balance and gait. Face-to-face focus group interviews with all participants in the intervention group and all volunteers will be conducted immediately post-intervention in a university laboratory room. All interviews will be audio-taped. Cash allowance will be provided to participants after completing each assessment and interview; and to volunteers after completing a home visit to subsidise their travel expenses in the study.
