Abstract

The aim of the study is to evaluate the changes of the kinetic parameters of gait in patients with supratentorial unilateral stroke in the chronic period (SUSChP). Material and Methods The study was conducted with 67 patients with SUSChP (56 patients included in the experimental group - 32 men and 24 women, with duration of disease 7.8 ± 2.0 months, and 11 patients in the control group - 9 men and 2 women, with duration of disease 7.3 ± 1.5 months). To evaluate the changes in the gait were followed cadence of 6m and 10m and the speed of movement which are the most informative kinetic parameters. Patients in the experimental group were treated with a specialized 10-day KT, which later continued to be performed as an adapted exercise program at home for a period of one month. Results After applying SKTM, the highest trend towards improvement in the kinetic parameters of gait was established after the 1st month with a level of significance during treatment p<0.001. Conclusion The enclosed SKTM in the experimental group continued later as an adapted exercise program at home, significantly improving the kinetic parameters of gait in patients with SUSChP, compared with the usual kinesitherapeutic methodology applied in the control group.
