In the last decade, devices for electromechanically assisted gait training have been developed to allow nonambulatory patients to practice intensive, task-oriented exercise. Our review of this training focuses on body-weight support, walking speed, and harness accelerations. Our original study provides interesting results suitable for properly selecting parameters in electromechanically assisted gait training that can increase the treatment effectiveness for patients with subacute stroke.
