The aim of this study was to quantify the energy cost and the cardiorespiratory response while walking at free speed with an Advanced Reciprocating Gait Orthosis (ARGO). The study was conducted on a group of six male paraplegic patients, age range 16–31 years (median = 22.50), with complete traumatic injuries ranging from T3 to T12 and a median time lapse from the trauma of 21 months. The data was recorded 6–8 weeks after the patients were fitted and trained to use the orthosis. Maintaining a… CONTINUE READING
