To compare results of the observational Wisconsin Gait Scale (WGS) and global gait indexes such as GDI/GVI, constituting an objective method of assessing gait, and taking into account parameters identified during 3-dimensional gait analysis.

Wisconsin Gait Scale (WGS) is an observational tool for the evaluation of gait quality in individuals after stroke with hemiplegia. It is divided into four subscales, which assess a total of fourteen ...
To assess the construct validity of the Wisconsin Gait Scale (WGS) in subjects after stroke.
Complex clinical gait analysis results can be expressed as single number gait deviations by applying multivariate processing methods. The original Movement Deviation Profile (MDP) quantifies the devia...
People with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (pwRR-MS), may be affected by subclinical gait impairment. The Expanded Disability Status Scale, the most used scale to assess MS related disability,...
Excessive Knee Flexion Gait Pattern (KFGP) is a common gait deviation in many pathological conditions. The contractures of the muscles that have been identified as being responsible of KFGP are: iliop...
Previous reports have the evidence implicating gait velocity may affect kinematic parameters. However, how the gait velocity will influence kinematic parameters remain unclear. The purpose...
Based on their preliminary quantitative gait findings suggesting that limited passive hip extension range is a key functionally limiting impairment affecting gait, the investigators propos...
Randomized trial of patients with cerebrovascular accident (CVA) receiving traditional and body weight supported (BWS) gait training. Participants are enrolled and randomized upon entry in...
Modern concepts of gait rehabilitation after stroke favor a task-specific repetitive approach. This study aims to test the efficacy on gait recovery of a mechanized gait trainer enabling n...
The purpose of this pilot trial is to determine whether the addition of gait laboratory analysis for surgical decision making, compared with the use of observational analysis alone, result...
Impaired ambulation not attributed to sensory impairment or motor weakness. FRONTAL LOBE disorders; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES (e.g., PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS); DEMENTIA, MULTI-INFARCT; ALZHEIMER DISEASE; and other conditions may be associated with gait apraxia.
Gait abnormalities that are a manifestation of nervous system dysfunction. These conditions may be caused by a wide variety of disorders which affect motor control, sensory feedback, and muscle strength including: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or MUSCULAR DISEASES.
A form of compensated hydrocephalus characterized clinically by a slowly progressive gait disorder (see GAIT DISORDERS, NEUROLOGIC), progressive intellectual decline, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. Spinal fluid pressure tends to be in the high normal range. This condition may result from processes which interfere with the absorption of CSF including SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, chronic MENINGITIS, and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp631-3)
Parenchymatous NEUROSYPHILIS marked by slowly progressive degeneration of the posterior columns, posterior roots, and ganglia of the spinal cord. The condition tends to present 15 to 20 years after the initial infection and is characterized by lightening-like pains in the lower extremities, URINARY INCONTINENCE; ATAXIA; severely impaired position and vibratory sense, abnormal gait (see GAIT DISORDERS, NEUROLOGIC), OPTIC ATROPHY; Argyll-Robertson pupils, hypotonia, hyperreflexia, and trophic joint degeneration (Charcot's Joint; see ARTHROPATHY, NEUROGENIC). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p726)
Manner or style of walking.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
