This study investigated the effects of non-paretic leg constraint by a step, combined with two different seat heights, on weight-bearing on the paretic leg and reduction of asymmetry during STS. Thirteen adult subjects (60.4 ± 5.7 years) were selected, with chronic hemiparesis (43.7 ± 50 months) due to stroke. Two force plates were used to analyze the vertical force (Fz) in the standing position and during STS. Individuals were instructed to rise from an instrumented bench at two seat heights… CONTINUE READING
