BACKGROUND People recovering from a stroke are less stable during walking compared to able-bodied controls. The purpose of this study was to examine whether and how post-stroke individuals adapt their steady-state gait pattern to maintain or increase their margins of stability during walking, and to examine how these strategies differ from strategies employed by able-bodied people. METHODS Ten post-stroke individuals and 9 age-matched able-bodied individuals walked on the Computer Assisted… CONTINUE READING
