This study was done to measure the oxygen consumption during activities of daily living(ADL) in hemiplegia.

Seventeen hemiplegic patients who were able to accomplish independent ADL without history of cardiopulmonary disease participated in this study. Oxygen consumption during sitting rest, writing, feeding simulation, lower body dressing, and walking were measured using Oxylog oxygen consumptionmeter.

Oxygen consumption during ADL in hemiplegia was lower than that of normal subjects. Energy efficiency of ADL by affected side was lower than that of by unaffected side. Energy efficiency of ADL and walking in more recovered patients was better than that in less recovered patients.

Key Words: Oxygen consumption, Activities of daily living, Walking, Hemiplegia
