Gait disorders in persons after stroke

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Muscle weakness and motor control deficits associated with stroke result in fairly typical hemiparetic gait. This chapter will focus on persons with hemiparesis after stroke in the post-acute and chronic stage, their major movement disorders, and how these affect locomotion. Differences in spatiotemporal, kinematic, and kinetic parameters that commonly characterize hemiparetic gait in the subacute and chronic post-stroke periods will be reviewed in reference to characteristics of speed-matched gait of nondisabled persons.
