1. Study objective To evaluate the effect of robotic-assisted gait training combined with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as compared to that of robotic-assisted gait training on gait function of subacute stroke patients
2. Subjects subacute stroke patients who cannot walk independently
- Group 1: Robotic-assisted gait training with anodal tDCS (30 min) + conventional gait training on ground (30 min)
- Group 2: Robotic-assisted gait training with sham tDCS (30 min) + conventional gait training on ground (30 min)
- Duration of treatment: 2 weeks, 5 times a week
- Evaluation: Baseline, 1 day after the treatment, 12 weeks after the treatment
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
