Description

Background: Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death and the leading cause of long term disability in the United States. Repetitive task-specific training has been shown to be favorable in stroke rehabilitation. Robot-assisted gait training (RAGT) incorporates gait training and repetitive task-specific training. RAGT has been shown to increase the likeliness of independent walking ability in patients who have experienced a stroke, especially when utilized in first three months. Currently there is limited research regarding the impact of RAGT on ADL function. Purpose: To describe the impact of robot-assisted gait training in combination with task-specific training on the functional mobility and ADL function in an individual who experienced a middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke.
