Summary

People who have experienced a stroke often have an increased risk of falling and decreased confidence in their balance, in part because of an inability to accurately place their feet while walking. Unfortunately, existing therapies have not been able to improve this problem. This study will test whether a novel therapy can improve foot placement accuracy during walking. Specifically, the therapy will involve repeated practice walking on a treadmill, while forces are applied to the legs to affect foot placement.
