Exercise Testing During Treadmill Gait in Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury

Treadmill therapy has the potential to improve the physical fitness and voluntary function of incomplete-lesion spinal cord injured (SCI) patients. However, if it is to be offered as a rehabilitation strategy, evidence must be gathered to support its effectiveness. Present methods used to determine the efficacy of treadmill training do not provide accurate means of monitoring changes in physical fitness during the exercise, or to accurately measure the changes in voluntary mu...

Motor Adaptation to Split-Belt Treadmill in Parkinson's Disease

Freezing of Gait (FOG) is a disabling symptom common in advanced Parkinson's Disease. FOG is an independent contributor to fall risk and is only partially relieved by medication. Parkinson's patients with FOG are known to have more difficulty with gait adaptation in their day to day environment. Further, asymmetry of gait has been implicated in FOG as these episodes are often elicited during asymmetric tasks such as turning. This study will examine the effect of a single sessio...

Physical Therapy and Deep Brain Stimulation in Parkinson Disease

While deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN-DBS) is commonly used to reduce tremor, muscle stiffness, and bradykinesia in people with Parkinson disease (PD), preliminary studies suggest balance may worsen and falls may increase after STN-DBS. Walking speed, known to be reduced in PD, typically improves after surgery; however, other important gait qualities may not improve. Given the potential for worsening balance and gait and increasing falls after surgery, it...
