Laufband locomotion with body weight support improved walking in persons with severe spinal cord injuries


After low transection of the spinal cord mammalian quadrupeds can be trained to walk on a driven surface indicating that coordinating neuronal circuits persist in the spinal cord segments caudal to the lesion. We trained 8 persons with incomplete spinal cord lesion on a Laufband (driven treadmill) for 1½ to 7 months (5 days a week, 30-60 minutes daily… (More)
