Wilson DJ, Powell M, Gorham JL, Childers MK: Ambulation training with and without partial weightbearing after traumatic brain injury: Results of a randomized, controlled trial. Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2006;85:68–74. Objective:To test the hypothesis that 8 wks of partial weight-bearing gait retraining improves functional ambulation to a greater extent than traditional physical therapy in individuals after traumatic brain injury. Design:A randomized, open-label, controlled, cohort study was… Expand
Outcomes Following Treadmill Training with Partial Body Weight Support of an Individual with a Traumatic Brain Injury and Multiple CVAs
Purpose: The purpose of this case report was to document outcomes of 16 weeks of body weight supported treadmill training (BWSTT) on the range of motion, muscle strength, cardiovascular parameters,Expand
Effectiveness of physical therapy for improving gait and balance in individuals with traumatic brain injury: A systematic review
TLDR
The state of evidence for gait and balance interventions in patients with mild-to-moderate TBI is surprisingly poor and greater consideration and conformity in the choice of outcome measures and attention in the design and standardization treatment approaches are essential in future research to advance practice. Expand
The recovery of running ability in an adolescent male after traumatic brain injury: a case study.
TLDR
A rehabilitation program consisting of strengthening and locomotor training improved running speed, quality, and endurance in an adolescent male after traumatic brain injury. Expand
Gait rehabilitation with body weight-supported treadmill training for a blast injury survivor with traumatic brain injury
TLDR
A 36-year-old male soldier injured by a rocket propelled grenade in Iraq who began physical therapy and gait training incorporating purposeful postural stability and mobility interventions as well as BWSTT improves gait quality, gait speed and maximum distance ambulated in a blast injury survivor with TBI. Expand
A Clinical Framework for Functional Recovery in a Person With Chronic Traumatic Brain Injury: A Case Study.
TLDR
A task-specific training program for gait walking and functional recovery in a young man with severe chronic traumatic brain injury with severe motor impairments who had not walked outside of therapy since his injury is described. Expand
Physiotherapy after traumatic brain injury: A systematic review of the literature
TLDR
Although some recommendations for the effectiveness of physical therapy interventions could be expressed, there are many questions concerning the treatment of humans with TBI which have not been investigated so far. Expand
Continued recovery in an adult with cerebellar ataxia
TLDR
In the 3.5 years after participation in an intervention of trunk stabilization and LT this adult became an independent limited community ambulator, and persons with severe ataxia secondary to TBI may continue to improve many years after injury. Expand
Randomized controlled trials in adult traumatic brain injury
TLDR
The data indicate that several active interventions during the acute phase of TBI are likely to be more effective than pharmacotherapy, whereas a comprehensive rehabilitation approach is preferred in post-acute phase TBI management. Expand
Outcomes following a locomotor training protocol on balance, gait, exercise capacity, and community integration in an individual with a traumatic brain injury: a case report
TLDR
Use of the NRN protocol may be feasible in individuals with TBI, though 24 sessions may not have been enough to achieve the full potential benefit of this intervention in an individual with a chronic TBI. Expand
Motor impairment rehabilitation post acquired brain injury
TLDR
Although there are a variety of treatment strategies to manage motor impairments and activity limitations following ABI, most are only supported by limited evidence pointing to the need for studies of improved methodological quality in this area. Expand

Partial weight-bearing gait retraining for persons following traumatic brain injury: preliminary report and proposed assessment scale
TLDR
The newly devised Missouri Ass Gait (MAG) scale, which includes developmental components of gait ability measured dramatic gains in patients recovering from traumatic brain injury, and was useful in communicating progress to both patients and providers. Expand

TLDR
This pilot study suggests that supported treadmill ambulation training can improve gait for individuals with incomplete SCIs by using objective gait measures. Expand

TLDR
This pilot study indicated that STAT is a safe, feasible, and promising intervention for acute stroke survivors, and a larger trial is warranted for statistical relevance. Expand

TLDR
All subjects showed improvement in OGWS and overall LE strength, and further research is required to delineate the essential elements of these particular training strategies. Expand
Treadmill training with partial body weight support compared with physiotherapy in nonambulatory hemiparetic patients.
TLDR
Treadmill training offered the advantages of task-oriented training with numerous repetitions of a supervised gait pattern proved powerful in gait restoration of nonambulatory patients with chronic hemiparesis and could therefore become an adjunctive tool to regain walking ability in a shorter period of time. Expand
Outcome 3 to 5 years after moderate to severe traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The results provide representative estimates of long-term morbidity in patients with TBI involving intracranial lesions and related to functional status and neuropsychologic functioning, but not to emotional or QOL measures. Expand
Body weight supported treadmill and overground training in a patient post cerebrovascular accident.
TLDR
Combined BWS training was feasible and effective in improving and maintaining functional performance in this participant and revealed that 17 of 20 indicators (85%) nine indicators (89%) performance one-month post intervention was achievable. Expand
Optimal outcomes obtained with body-weight support combined with treadmill training in stroke subjects.
TLDR
Retraining gait in severely impaired stroke subjects with a percentage of their body weight supported resulted in better walking and postural abilities than did gait training in patients bearing their full weight. Expand
