Walking Training With Partial Body Weight Support on Static and Dynamic Surfaces in Stroke Survivers

Completed

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The purpose of this study is evaluate the effects of walking training with partial body weight support on static (floor) and dynamic (treadmill) surfaces in individuals with hemiparesis due to stroke. For this purpose, two training protocols will be employed in three experimental groups: G1 will do the walking training with partial body weight support on static surfaces and G2 will do the walking training with partial body weight support on dynamic surfaces

Conditions

Interventions

  • Static surface Procedure
    Other Names: floor walking training
    Intervention Desc: During all session time the subject will walk on the floor with partial body weight support. This protocol will be repeated in all sessions.
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Static surface
    Description: The subjects will do the walking training with partial body weight support on static surface. The will be submitted to three weekly training sessions of approximately 45 minutes each , for six weeks , totaling 18 sessions
  • Dynamic surface Procedure
    Other Names: Treadmill Training
    Intervention Desc: During all session time the subject will walk on the treadmill with partial body weight support. This protocol will be repeated in all sessions.
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: dynamic surface
    Description: The subjects will do the walking training with partial body weight support on dynamic surface. The will be submitted to three weekly training sessions of approximately 45 minutes each , for six weeks , totaling 18 sessions
  • Dynamic and static surface Procedure
    Other Names: Treadmill and floor walking training
    Intervention Desc: In each training sessions individuals will do the first half of the training time walking on the treadmill with partial body weight support and the second half of the training time walking on the floor with partial body weight support .
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Dynamic and static surfaces
    Description: The subjects will do the walking training with partial body weight support on both static and dynamic surfaces. The will be submitted to three weekly training sessions of approximately 45 minutes each , for six weeks , totaling 18 sessions

Trial Design
