Overground walking with a constraint force on the non-paretic leg during swing improves weight shift toward the paretic side in people post-stroke.
Background: Targeting enhancing the use of the paretic leg during locomotor practice might improve motor function of the paretic leg. Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine whether application of constraint force to the non-paretic leg in the posterior direction during overground walking would enhance the use of the paretic leg in people with chronic stroke. Methods: Fifteen individuals post-stroke participated in two experimental conditions, i.e., overground walking with a…read more
