Objective

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of two high-intensity gait training interventions on contraversive pushing behaviors (CPB) in individuals posts-stroke in the acute inpatient rehabilitation setting. Contraversive pushing is the leaning postural defects that are sometime present after a stroke.

We are comparing body-weight-supported treadmill training to gait training in the EksoNR exoskeleton.

We will also evaluate the effect of these interventions on functional mobility, strength, balance, and endurance. Furthermore, we intend to measure therapist burden when mobilizing individuals with CPB.

Who Can Participate

Inpatients with stroke diagnoses who demonstrate contraversive pushing behaviors.

Compensation

This is voluntary, without compensation.

Age Range

18-80 years old
