Additional file 7: Figure S1. of Can Lokomat therapy with children and adolescents be improved? An adaptive clinical pilot trial comparing Guidance force, Path control, and FreeD

Time course of heart rate during conditions. Time course of the average normalized heart rate curves of the 3 conditions. Thereby, the individual mean heart rate over the last minute of the warm-up phase (regular walking with 100% Guidance Force) served as an individual baseline (=100%) to which the longitudinal curves were normalized. The analysis shows that a steady state was reached after approximately 1 min and that the 1-min break was long enough for the heart rate to return close to baseline. (TIFF 1906 kb)
