Walking after Stroke: Comfortable versus Maximum Safe Speed.
Bohannon, Richard W.
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v15 n3 p246-48 Sep 1992
This study attempted to (1) determine whether stroke patients (n=20) can safely increase their walking speed above that of comfortable walking; (2) describe the relationship between comfortable and maximum safe walking speed; and (3) examine correlations between maximum and comfortable speeds and a functional walking score. Subjects were able to increase their walking speed significantly. (DB)
