Do persons with chronic stroke benefit from using the microprocessor stance and swing control orthosis C-Brace?


In a study with 14 subjects with chronic stroke using the C-Brace, 11 subjects (78%) benefitted in terms of clinically meaningful improvements in walking endurance (100%), self-selected walking speed (36%) or balance (18%). The C-Brace may have an assistive or therapeutic or a combined effect.
