To investigate the effect of a robotic exoskeleton on kinematics, muscle activity, ground reaction forces and spatiotemporal characteristics during walking in persons post stroke.
The primary objective of the study is to investigate the energy consumption, cardiorespiratory load and perceived exertion, and how these parameters change, during walking with robot-assis...
Stroke survivors, as a group, are extremely inactive and this has serious consequences for them, including an increased risk of a second stroke and developing other diseases. This study in...
Being able to walk is a major determinant of whether a patient returns home after stroke or lives in residential care. For the family, the loss of the stroke sufferer from everyday life is...
Stroke is the leading cause of severe disability in adults. The first cause of alterations in the quality of life and autonomy in these patients are disorders of walking and the balance. T...
Community dwelling stroke survivors most often fall while walking. Understanding how post-stroke individuals control mediolateral footpath during walking may help elucidate the mechanisms that contrib...
The review summarizes existing information on coaching and potential treatment-and-prophylactic effect of backward walking in elderly. It provides information on the success of the backward walking to...
It is well known that physical activity levels for persons after stroke or acquired brain injuries do not reach existing recommendations. Walking training is highly important since the ability to walk...
Although walking speed is the most common measure of gait performance post-stroke, improved walking speed following rehabilitation does not always indicate the recovery of paretic limb function. Over ...
Ageing brings profound changes in walking gait. For example, older adults reduce the modification of pelvic and trunk kinematics with walking speed. However, the modification of the coordination betwe...
An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.
The rate at which steps are made while walking.
Adjustment and manipulation of the vertebral column.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Musculoskeletal manipulation based on the principles of OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE developed in 1874 by Dr Andrew Taylor Still.
