Rehabilitation of Conversion Gait Disorder
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Phase||phase 1/phase 2|
|Sponsor||Oslo University Hospital|
|Collaborator||Norwegian School of Sport Sciences|
|Start date||September 2007|
|End date||September 2010|
|Trial size||60 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01422278, 2.2004.164, SSR.2005.1|
Evaluating the effects in functional status after three weeks of cognitive - and behavioural rehabilitation on patients with gait disorder. The patients are followed up as after 1 and 12 months to study if any improvement is still present. The patients are being recruited from neurological units. The intervention is explanation of symptoms, positive reinforcement of normal behaviour and absence reinforcement of dysfunctional behaviour. In addition the study aims at describing typical gait patterns at patients with gait disorder by using biomechanical measurements (EKG).
