|概要||To investigate these physical impairments in adults after stroke using stepwise multiple regression analyses.
The magnitude of ankle muscle coactivation during gait was quantified with a coactivation index (CoI) for the first and second double support (DS2), and single support (SS) phases in 44 community-dwelling adults after stroke. Paretic motor function, sensory function, spasticity, ankle muscle strength, and balance ability were evaluated. Adults with impaired balance ability and paretic ankle muscle weakness after stroke used a compensation strategy of increased ankle muscle coactivation on the paretic side to enhance postural stability during gait.
