ActiveStep Comparative Effectiveness Trial

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.
