In addition to the home exercise equipment mentioned above, one can also use  simple items around the house for therapy exercises. Examples of items you may already have around the house that can be used for stroke rehab include:

Balls (ie soccer, basketball) - These can be used for weight bearing to the weak hand, rolling with the weak hand, bilateral activities such as lifting the ball, or coordination activities such as catching, throwing, or kicking the ball.

Household Tools (ie nuts and bolts, screwdriver) - Tools can be used to work on fine motor coordination for the stroke patient who has hand movement but lacks quality of movement.
