BACKGROUND Definitive evidence that exercise interventions that improve gait also reduce disability is lacking. A task-oriented, motor sequence learning exercise intervention has been shown to reduce the energy cost of walking and improve gait speed, but whether the intervention also improves activity and participation has not been demonstrated. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare the impact of a task-oriented, motor sequence learning exercise (TO) intervention and the impact… CONTINUE READING
