Controlled exercise practice following stroke

eccentric resistance training

Writing in Neurorehabil Neural Repair  Jan 2013 Dr. Clark from Randall VA Medical Center, Gainesville, FL, USA shows that eccentric (ECC) resistance training is more effective than concentric (CNN) resistance training in improving walking speed following stroke.

It is worth considering further controlling exercise practice in terms of speed and range of motion using the LegTutor so that intensive controlled exercise practice will further concentrate on eccentric resistance training together with motion feedback.
