Dynamics of reciprocal gait of adult paraplegics using the Para Walker (Hip Guidance Orthosis).

Abstract

Force plate studies with nine adult traumatic complete paraplegics with lesion at thoracic level have shown that, unlike children walking in the Oswestry Hip Guidance Orthosis (Para Walker) system, they have to apply extra stabilizing forces through the crutches for safe walking. These forces are described and are attributed to an increased crutch force… (More)
