The Lokomat is a commercially available robotic gait trainer, applied for gait rehabilitation in post-stroke hemiparetic patients. Selective and well-dosed clinical use of the Lokomat training parameters, i.e. guidance, speed and bodyweight support, requires a good understanding of how these parameters affect the neuromuscular control of post-stroke hemiparetic gait.

Gait and balance impairment is associated with poorer functional recovery after stroke. The cerebellum is known to be strongly implicated in the functional reorganization of motor networks in patients...
To better understand gait initiation in individuals with stroke and suggest possible training strategies, we compared the gait initiation of individuals with stroke and age-matched controls, and we ex...
High-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation enhanced treadmill training effects on gait performance in individuals with chronic stroke: A double-blinded randomized controlled pilot trial.
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) combined with treadmill training has been suggested to modulate corticomotor activity and improve gait performance in people with Parkinson's diseas...
The mechanisms by which spasticity reductions after botulinum toxin A (BoNT) affect gait in stroke are not well understood. We systematically reviewed the effects of BoNT on spatiotemporal, kinematic,...
Increased variability in spatiotemporal variables has been demonstrated in individuals after stroke. Gait Variability Index (GVI) has recently been proposed, potentially to be used as a standardized t...
The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of an automatic gait trainer (Lokomat) handled by physical therapists compared with categorized gait training by physical therapis...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of robot-assisted gait training on active walking in the patients with stroke.
This study is being done to test the possible benefits of gait-specific training using body-weight supported, Lokomat assisted, treadmill training in people with Multiple Sclerosis.
This randomized trial investigates the hypothesis that regular aerobic exercise training using a task specific gait training modality will improve cardiovascular fitness, functional mobili...
Conventional therapies do not restore normal gait for many stroke survivors. The long-term goal of this work is to restore volitional lower limb motor control and gait following stroke. ...
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
The teaching or training of patients concerning their own health needs.
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.

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 ...
