Regaining the ability to walk is a very important goal for people with mobility impairments. For this reason, recovery of walking capacity is a major objective in the rehabilitation of patients with motor impairments of the lower extremities. Because of similarities with walking, cycling leg exercise might be a beneficial motor function rehabilitation method in sense of an add-on therapy intervention next to intensive task oriented walking practice.
The objective was to examine potential benefits of a lower limb cyclic movement therapy on walking capacity in patients with mobility impairments.
