Assistive technology assists walking

Writing in the January edition of disability Rehabilitation Dr. Wittwer and his group from Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia; Department of Physiotherapy look at clinical trials that assess assistive rehabilitation technologies that synchronise over-ground walking to rhythmic auditory cues. The objective is to improve temporal and spatial gait measures in adults with neurological clinical conditions and improve walking. The group found that this technology will result in a short-term improvement in gait in patient groups including stroke, Huntington’s disease, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, dementia, multiple sclerosis and parkinson’s disease.
