For functional mobility sit to stand task is a prerequisite index. This study intended to investigate the correlation of sit to stand with balance and functional mobility of post stroke patients. Total 50 participants with informed consent having stroke either infarction or hemorrhagic, age bracket 30-70years, capable to walk under supervision, minimum 3 months had elapsed since the stroke, and able to communicate (score>24on Mini-Mental State Examination) were enrolled. The demographics were recorded and standardized assessment tool included, Berg Balance Scale (BBS), Time Up and Go Test (TUG), Five times Sit to stand test (FSTST), and Mini BES Test. The measurements were obtained after performance of FSTS test. The mean age of the patients was (54.59.83), with 40 (80%) male and 10(20%) female patients. Pearson product-moment correlations were computed among the different measures. Bivariate correlation showed strong association of these measures (FSTS, BBS, TUG &Mini BES Test) as the p -value was significant (
