Gait Training for Persons With Stroke

2014-08-27 03:33:03 | BioPortfolio


The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of an automatic gait trainer (Lokomat) handled by physical therapists compared with categorized gait training by physical therapists in ambulatory stroke patients. Gait speed, gait distance and gait symmetry are used to evaluate study effects.

Hypotheses: 1) The Lokomat improves stroke patients gait speed, distance and symmetry more than categorized gait training.
