BACKGROUND Locomotor training using partial body weight-supported treadmill (BWST) walking has been widely investigated for people after stroke, yet there remains a lack of evidence concerning the optimal training duration and the effect of locomotor impairment severity. Previous protocols have not emphasized the transfer of locomotor skills from the BWST environment to overground. OBJECTIVES To assess the feasibility of a program combining locomotor training using BWST with task-specific… CONTINUE READING
