OBJECTIVES To identify the most responsive method of measuring gait speed, to estimate the responsiveness of other outcome measures, and to determine whether gait speed predicts discharge destination in acute stroke. DESIGN A prospective cohort study. SETTING Five acute-care hospitals. PATIENTS Fifty subjects with residual gait deficits after a first-time stroke. INTERVENTIONS Five- (5mWT) and 10-meter walk tests (10mWT) at comfortable and maximum speeds, with 2 evaluations conducted an… CONTINUE READING
