Training with robot-applied resistance in people with motor-incomplete spinal cord injury: Pilot study

Tania Lam, PhD, et al.

This article describes a pilot study in which we tested the possibility of using the Lokomat to apply resistance against leg movements during gait training for people with partial spinal cord injuries. Our results indicated that resistance training with the Lokomat is feasible. Our data also suggest that resistance training could lead to better improvements in the performance of skilled overground walking tasks (such as stepping over obstacles or walking up stairs) compared with standard Lokomat training (without resistance).
