Abstract

Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability in the United States. Improving walking ability is often the primary goal for post-stroke individuals. In the following analyses, post-stroke and non-impaired stroke individuals participated in gait phase studies: phase timing analysis, velocity and acceleration profiles, and video gait kinematic analysis. This presentation will highlight similarities and differences evaluated in the gait cycle of a post-stroke individual and a healthy, non-impaired individual. Results from the various analyses suggest post-stroke individuals often have slow walking speeds, decreased ability to accelerate, and decreased joint range of motion while walking.
