Locomotor Recovery and Compensation Post-stroke
The objective of this project is to identify the trajectory of neurological and locomotor recovery in patients’ early post-stroke and the biomechanical strategies used by patients to accomplish independent locomotion. These patterns of recovery and underlying movement strategies used to accomplish independent ambulation will be assessed during both conventional rehabilitation strategies, and following application of physical interventions, specifically high intensity training (HIT) of stepping tasks, that have been shown to strongly influence multiple measures of neurological and locomotor recovery.
This study is funded by the National Institutes of Health.
