Effects of lower limb orthotic devices in people with neurological disorders
This thesis investigated the effects of orthotic lower limb devices in people with neurological disorders. In part I, measures to assess the effects of orthotic devices on different aspects of gait capacity were evaluated. In the second part of this thesis, the effects of orthopedic footwear on the three aspects of gait capacity (stepping, dynamic balance and gait adaptability) were investigated in individuals with HMSN.
