Locomotor step training with body weight support improves respiratory motor function in individuals with chronic spinal cord injury.

Locomotor Training with body weight support significantly improves pulmonary function in individuals with chronic SCI. These improvements are likely the result of neuroplastic changes in spinal neural circuitry responsible for the activation of respiratory muscles preserved after injury.

Locomotor step training with body weight support improves respiratory motor function in individuals with chronic spinal cord injury

This prospective case-controlled clinical study was undertaken to investigate to what extent the manually assisted treadmill stepping Locomotor Training with body weight support (LT) can change respiratory function in individuals with chronic Spinal Cord Injury (SCI).
