|Official Title:||Effects of Body Weight-supported Treadmill Training on Center of Mass Control in Spinal Cord Injury, Measured With Inertial Sensors|
|Study Start Date :||July 2012|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||November 2015|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||December 2015|
Experimental: Body Weight Support
Treatment protocol consisted of 18 training sessions on the BWST, three times a week, every session included three sets of six minutes of locomotion with rest intervals of 2 min of rest.
BWST (six weeks, 3 times/week)
- Jerk (Derivative of the acceleration of the mass center as marker oscillation of the control the center of mass) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]The jerk is measure with a instrumented stance testing. For this test, we use small wireless inertial sensors (OPAL sensor, APDM, Inc. Portland, OR). This outcome is recorded automatically generated using Mobility Lab Software (APDM Inc., Portland, OR).
- Walking Index for Spinal Cord Injury (WISCI) scale [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]The WISCI is a walking scale, that measures the independence of walking based on the use of devices.
