Fast Stepping in Stroke Patients for Fall Prediction and Prevention:Control Mechanisms and Clinical Implications

Active, not recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The purpose of this study was to compare the balance strategy, as well as center of pressure (COP) trajectory and parameters between healthy adults and patients with hemiplegia in response to slow- and fast-speed waist- pulling perturbations in forward, left, right, and backward directions.

Detailed Description

The ability to quickly respond to external perturbations is an important capacity of stroke patients to maintain dynamic balance in activities of daily living. The purpose of this study was to compare the balance strategy, as well as center of pressure (COP) trajectory and parameters between healthy adults and patients with hemiplegia in response to slow- and fast-speed waist- pulling perturbations in forward, left, right, and backward directions.
