Published in Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 03/20/2013 Dr. Kressler J et al discuss body weight supported training approaches in Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). The group look at treadmill-based LT with manual assistance (TM), electrical stimulation (TS), and a driven gait orthosis (DGO) and overground LT with electrical stimulation (OG). The group draw conclusions as to which approach better enhances endurance, functionality and home/community ambulation.
