Different biomechanical variables explain within-subjects versus between-subjects variance in step length asymmetry post-stroke

Author(s): Natalia Sánchez, Nicolas Schweighofer, James M. Finley
Different biomechanical variables explain within-subjects versus between-subjects variance in step length asymmetry post-stroke 150 150 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Step length asymmetry (SLA) is common in most stroke survivors. Several studies have shown that factors such as paretic propulsion can explain between-subjects differences in SLA. However, whether the factors…
