OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that participants with stroke will exhibit appropriate increase in muscle activation of the paretic leg when taking a long step with the nonparetic leg compared to during steady-state walking, with a consequent increase in biomechanical output and symmetry during the stance phase of the modified gait cycle. DESIGN Single-session observational study. SETTING Clinical research center in an outpatient hospital setting. PARTICIPANTS Adults with chronic… CONTINUE READING
