The Connection Between Gait Variability Parameters and Balance Performance in Children With Physical Disability

The purpose of this study is to explore the connection between gait variability parameters and balance performance in children with physical disability

Variable Visual Stimulus as a Novel Approach for Gait Rehabilitation

Deterioration in walking performance as a result of disease or simply as a result of aging is a serious threat to independence in older adults. In this project, the investigators propose a...

Active Limb Orthosis for Home-Use Stroke Hemiparetic Gait Rehabilitation

The objective of this research is to test a passive shoe to correct gait in individuals with asymmetric walking patterns. This will be done in a clinic and within their own home. Individua...

Effects of Backward Gait on Sand on Improving the Gait Parameters of Patients With Chronic Stroke.

Gait training in stroke is a complex process of motor learning although restoring patients ability to walk would not prepare the individual with the challenges faced in the real environmen...

Effects of Gait Biofeedback and Impairment-based Rehabilitation in Individuals With Chronic Ankle Instability

Individuals with chronic ankle instability (CAI) have demonstrated altered gait patterns. Gait training may be necessary to address these alterations as protocols focusing solely on streng...

Walking while talking: Young adults flexibly allocate resources between speech and gait.

Walking while talking is an ideal multitask behavior to assess how young healthy adults manage concurrent tasks as it is well-practiced, cognitively demanding, and has real consequences for impaired p...

Differential associations between dual-task walking abilities and usual gait patterns in healthy older adults-Results from the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging.

It is well established that facing a cognitive challenge while carrying out a motor task interferes with the motor task performance, and in general the ability of handling a dual-task declines progres...

Early clinical evaluation of total hip arthroplasty by three-dimensional gait analysis and muscle strength testing.

As improvement of gait is an important reason for patients to undergo total hip arthroplasty (THA) and they generally tend to evaluate its success based on postoperative walking ability, objective fun...

Paretic propulsion as a measure of walking performance and functional motor recovery post-stroke: A review.

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 ...

Biomechanical evaluation of virtual reality-based turning on a self-paced linear treadmill.

Patients with brain injuries such as Parkinson's disease or stroke exhibit abnormal gait characteristics especially during gait transitions such as step initiation and turning. Since such transitions ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Manner or style of walking.

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.

Educational programs structured in such a manner that the participating professionals, physicians, or students develop an increased awareness of their performance, usually on the basis of self-evaluation questionnaires.

The rate at which steps are made while walking.

Impairment of the ability to coordinate the movements required for normal ambulation (WALKING) which may result from impairments of motor function or sensory feedback. This condition may be associated with BRAIN DISEASES (including CEREBELLAR DISEASES and BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES); SPINAL CORD DISEASES; or PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES.
