Phase 3 Results

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

- Clinical evidence of a stable walking deficit due to an ischemic stroke, as judged by the Investigator, based on review of medical records and physical exam. Such deficit was not present prior to the stroke and cannot be attributed primarily to other conditions (e.g. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, arthritis). Evidence of walking deficits is objectively supported by any one of the following findings on clinical examination:
1. obvious slowness of movement assigned primarily to the stroke
2. use of an assistive walking device such as a cane or walker
3. Presence of movement pattern deviations such as stiff-legged gait, foot drop, hip hiking and hip circumduction
- Modified Rankin Scale score of 1 - 3, regardless of the cause(s) of the disability
- Sufficient ambulatory ability to independently complete the 2MinWT and 10MWT
- ≥ 6 months from occurrence of most recent stroke
