Gait of Stroke Patients
The gait of stroke patients is characterized by modifications in spatio-temporal gait parameters including decreased cadence, stride length and speed, and in kinematic gait parameters such as decreased peak hip flexion, peak knee flexion and peak ankle dorsiflexion. Indeed, several studies have demonstrated that the gait of a hemiplegic patient is characterised by a reduction in velocity, stride length and rhythm, as well as changes in the pattern of the various phases of the gait cycle. Concerning the kinematic abnormalities, one of the clinical gait alterations most commonly encountered in these patients is spastic equinus foot. This kinematic abnormality is characterised by a lack of dorsiflexion in both the stance and swing phases, usually, secondary to an over-activity of the Triceps Surae (TS) (gastrocnemius and soleus muscles). In hemiplegic patients, spasticity of the plantarflexor muscles of the ankle has been shown to cause the clinically observed equinus
