https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9491527
PloS One; Rowland DM, Lewek MD

Sep 22nd, 2022 - Individuals with hemiparesis following stroke often experience a decline in the paretic limb's anteriorly directed ground reaction force during walking (i.e., limb propulsive force). Gait speed and walking capacity have been independently associated with paretic limb propulsion, quality of life, and participation in people with stroke. However, it is unclear as to the extent that underlying lim...
