Feasibility of lower-limb muscle power training to enhance locomotor function poststroke

Patrick Morgan, MS, et al.

Stroke is a common and critical problem among the aging veteran population. The effect of stroke on walking is significant, with less than 50 percent progressing to independent community ambulation. Our overall goal is to improve walking in these persons by training subjects with an intervention that specifically targets existing neuromuscular impairments, thereby facilitating recovery of walking. Since improving walking is the most often stated goal of persons following a stroke, rehabilitation to improve walking speed, and therefore functional ability, is an important goal for improving quality of life.
