Abstract

Robotic assisted gait has been more studied on spinal cord injured patients and there are few studies that analyze robotic assisted gait in stroke patients. Dobkin in his review underlines the importance of body weight supported treadmill training (BWSTT) in improving gait symmetry and walking speed in stroke patients but these parameters have never been evaluated using robotic devices (Lokomat). The goal of this abstract is to verify immediate changes of temporal parameters and sagittal-plane kinematics evaluating gait pattern changes in terms of symmetry and repeatability.
