Sagittal plane kinematic analysis of the six-minute walk test: a classification of hemiplegic gait.

Abstract

AIM The aim of this study was to propose a kinematic classification of gait according to six minute walk test performance. METHODS Thirty-four hemiplegic subjects were enrolled. Six-minute walk test (SMWT), gait analysis and Walking Handicap Scale score (WHS) were measured. A k-means cluster analysis was used to classify the sample into three sub-groups… (More)
