Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

This study is being conducted to compare healthy patients versus patients with muscle tightness in their leg(s) after an acquired brain injury using walking trials time, a balance test, and foot pressure data. This data is obtained using foot pressure sensors, timers, and distance walked.

Detailed Description

This study is being conducted to demonstrate the objective utility of the use of pedobarography as a tool to differentiate normal controls from people with spastic gait as well as having utility in objectification of treatment effect on level surfaces and on a ADA based obstacle course.
