THE EFFECT OF BODY WEIGHT UNLOADING ON KINEMATIC GAIT PARAMETERS DURING TREADMILL WALKING
Duda S., Gembalczyk G., Jureczko P.
pages 282 - 285, full text

Body weight unloading (BWU) has become a typical strategy of gait training for patients with neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. However, the unloading system has an impact on the gait parameters. The aim of this study was to investigate kinematic gait parameters of healthy person during treadmill walking by manipulating BWU and treadmill speed. The two type of unloading strategies has been studied - with stationary unloading system and with application of algorithm controlling a follow-up the movement of unloading system in horizontal axis.
