Comparable walking gait performance during executive and non-executive cognitive dual-tasks in chronic stroke: A pilot study.

Summary of "Comparable walking gait performance during executive and non-executive cognitive dual-tasks in chronic stroke: A pilot study."

Falls are a serious problem among stroke survivors due to subsequent injuries, recovery setbacks, dependence, and mortality. A growing body of dual-task (DT) studies suggests a role of executive functions in gait control and falls, particularly in subacute stroke. However, few studies have compared distinct executive and non-executive tasks, nor their effects on chronic stroke gait.
