Experimental: Ankle-Bot Training
Subjects in this group receive focused ankle training using the ankle-bot device.
The Ankle-bot is a piece of robotic therapy equipment for the ankle. In this study, it will be used to guide and assist the subject into ankle flexion, extension, inversion and eversion.
Active Comparator: Conventional Therapy
Subjects in this group will receive conventional focused ankle physical therapy.
Other: Conventional focused ankle therapy
Conventional focused ankle therapy will be performed by a physical therapist.
No Intervention: Control
Subjects in this group will not receive treatment; they will continue their usual care.
- Gait Parameters [ Time Frame: Baseline, throughout study enrollment, and at 1 month and 3 month follow-up ]
