Observation of the Gait Cycle in Patients With Hemiplegia in Order to Improve the Triggering of Functional Electrical Stimulation "MASEA"


Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The main objective of this study is the estimation and comparison of the dephasing between the switch heel and the inertial placed on the paretic foot compared to the events of the gait cycle determined by a Gaitrite system (beginning and end of the swing phase) in conditions without stimulation.



  • Gait analysis Other
    Other Names: Gait analysis system : Gait Rite®
    Intervention Desc: A Gaitrite system, a goniometer, and EMG are used to record data while the patient walks 10 meters.

  • Perspective: Prospective
  • Sampling: Non-Probability Sample

Trial Population

Study patients are recuted from the patient pool that is either hospitalized or consulting in the department of Neurological Reeducation and Readaptation at the Grau du Roi medical center at the Nîmes University Hospital (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nîmes). Patients are stroke victims with gait problems.
