Abstract

Background and Purpose-Robotic-assisted walking training after stroke aims to enhance the odd of regaining independent gait. Recent studies have suggested that this approach is more effective than conventional therapy alone only in severely affected patients. We determined whether these results persist at long-term follow-up. Methods-Forty-eight nonambulant participants after subacute stroke were stratified by motricity index into high (
