Abstract

In order to evaluate the efficacy of EMG-BFB either in gait retraining or in global functional recovery, stroke patients with foot drop were treated with EMG-BFB plus traditional physical therapy and compared with a control group of stroke patients with foot drop treated with traditional physical therapy program. Sixteen patients who had suffered ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke with secondary unilateral motor deficit were included in the study. Patients of both groups (experimental and control groups) were evaluated, before and after treatment, by means of a neurological functional standard examination, the functional Barthel scale and the gait analysis, by means of the evaluation scale of Basmajian. In both experimental and control groups a significant functional recovery, measured by means of the Barthel scale, was found at the end of the treatment, although a significant improvement was demonstrated only 3 out of the 7 patients of the control group.
