Start date November 2015
End date January 2017
Trial size 15 participants
Trial identifier NCT02913911, 2559A10303150

Summary

- Does the utility of external feedback in terms of goal-directed LLL approach during STS training immediately improve functional ability relating to walking in ambulatory patients with SCI?

- Does the utility of LLL feedback improve functional ability relating to walking in ambulatory patients with SCI after 2-week training?

Study Design

Allocation randomized
Intervention model parallel assignment
Masking single blind (outcomes assessor)
Arm
(Experimental)
Subjects will be trained using the sit-to-stand weight-taking machine. Prior to the training, subjects sit in a standard sitting position. Then they will be instructed to take most of their body-weight onto the legs while they standing up where the light bars will be gradually lightened from the red, yellow and green zones according to the level of LLL. Then they stand up, hold a standing position for 3-5 seconds and sit-down with always maximize their body-weight onto their legs during performing the task in which the green zone will always be lightened.
feedback
Sit to stand training with external feedback
(Sham Comparator)
Subjects will be trained using the same instruction and protocol as the experimental group, but without the provision of external feedback.
