BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE An ankle-foot orthosis with an oil damper (AFO-OD) was developed to resist plantarflexion motion, thereby improving hemiplegic gait performance. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of AFO-OD on muscle activity during the gait cycle in individuals affected by stroke. METHODS Electromyography (EMG) was used to assess gait at a self-selected speed while wearing an AFO-OD or an AFO with a plantarflexion stop (AFO-PS) worn on the affected side in 11… CONTINUE READING
