The therapeutic goals of this approach are built on entirely different principles than conventional gait training
and seek to achieve restoration and recovery of walking through the inherent capacities of the spinal and supraspinal locomotor centers .
In the last decade, devices for electromechanically assisted gait training
have been developed to allow nonambulatory patients to practice intensive, task-oriented exercise.
This confirms what is already clear to anyone who has attempted to learn how to provide manual assistance to the leg during step training: manual skill in gait training
is learned and requires intensive repetitive practice.
Data collection to quantify initial voluntary function was repeated after 36 sessions of FES-assisted gait training
That trial showed that an advantage of gait robot training versus conventional gait training
existed in terms of single-limb stance duration .
A pilot study of randomized clinical controlled trial of gait training
in subacute stroke patients with partial body-weight support electromechanical gait trainer and functional electrical stimulation: Six-month follow-up.
METABOLIC AND CARDIAC RESPONSES DURING ROBOTIC GAIT TRAINING
Further studies are needed to optimize the translation of treadmill gait training
to overground walking.

Balance and gait training
have produced promising results in maintaining function (5).
It is possible for people with motor-incomplete SCI (m-iSCI) to recover basic walking function, especially with intensive, task-specific gait training
The lane is used for sprints to get our athletes back to doing some running and we also use it for gait training
,'' Terri explains.
Intervention began with bed exercises and was progressed through bed mobility, seated exercises, transfer training, standing exercises, standing balance activities, and gait training
(Table 1), which is similar to the progression of mobilization activities outlined in previous early mobility research (10), (11) as well as the progression of activity used in previous TAH and biventricular assist device cases.
In 29 chapters aimed at physicians, prosthetists, and therapists and presented in an outline format, they address anatomy and kinesiology, surgical and other principles of amputation, patient assessment, prosthetic design and function, sockets and suspension systems, prosthetic restoration and management of various types of amputations, gait training
and deviations, prosthetic components, psychological adjustment and related clinical issues, sexuality, return to the community, participation in sports and recreation, pain, skin challenges, musculoskeletal problems, and special populations: cancer patients, multiple-extremity amputees, infants and children, and aging patients.
