Abstract:

We evaluated the effects of drop foot stimulator ActiGait on walking speed, endurance and gait pattern. ActiGait improved gait in speed (0,55 m/s+0,065 vs 0,77 m/s+0,07) and endurance(211m +37,48 vs 260 m, +31,50). Gait analysis revealed improvements in Initiation Angle and Initial Plantar Flexion.
