The investigators are conducting a multi-central randomized prospective trial comparing a standard physical therapy gait and balance program with a gait and balance program that includes the ActiveStep™ treadmill.
Subjects will be randomized to either have the ActiveStep™ as part of their therapy or to have their therapy without it. Data will be gathered from session notes, medical records and short interviews with the subjects at baseline and every 3 months over the telephone for the duration of the study.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

This study aims to determine if Aquatic Treadmill Therapy is effective for improving economy of gait, gait speed, balance, and cardiovascular fitness in people with chronic stroke.
Balance and gait problems in subjects with neurological disease lead to reduced mobility, loss of independence and frequent falls. Treadmill training is a widely used form of treatment and...
The purpose of this research was to discuss the effect of backward walking treadmill training on balance ability, speed of walking and cardiopulmonary fitness in patients with chronic stro...
Gait and balance problems are a significant source of disability in patients with Parkinson disease. Physical therapy remains one of the main treatments. On the other hand some medications...
Our primary hypothesis is that a virtual reality system combined with physical activity provided on a body weight support treadmill training would change clinical parameters of balance and...
A growing number of studies are using modified treadmills to train reactive balance after trip-like perturbations that require multiple steps to recover balance. The goal of this study was thus to dev...
To describe the incidence and short-term recovery of balance control in children and adolescents receiving neurotoxic treatment for noncentral nervous system cancers and to investigate the association...
The purpose of the study was to compare acute bouts of aquatic treadmill (ATM) and land treadmill (LTM) exercise on flow-mediated dilation (FMD), post-exercise blood pressure (BP), plasma nitrate/nitr...
