Abstract

The temporal-distance aspects of stride, the relationship between symmetry and gait performance and the influence of different walking aids were assessed in 20 independently walking subjects with hemiplegia of at least 3 months duration. The subjects were found to have gait symmetry but this was not related to gait speed or hemiplegic severity. The results do not indicate a strong relationship between type of walking aid and gait symmetry.
