ABSTRACT
[Purpose] Body weight-supported treadmill training (BWSTT) is used to improve the gait ability of patients with hemiplegia. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of BWSTT for patients with hemiplegia during the recovery phase. [Subjects and Methods] Thirty-two patients with hemiplegia participated. They were allocated to (1) level walking training, (2) BWSTT, and (3) combined training groups. Outcome measures were: the 10-m walking time, cadence, stride length, BBS, FIM, and FAC. [Results] The BWSTT group demonstrated a more significant improvement in stride than the combined training group. No significant effects were observed between the groups in any of the other measurements. [Conclusion] During the recovery phase of stroke patients with hemiplegia, walking exercises with BWSTT were not effective at improving gait ability.
