  Purpose
Until now, there's still no any strong evidence supported "which is the best way to restoration walking ability" in spinal cord injury. Most of the evidence suggest that, there is somehow better after gait rehabilitation for ASIA classification C and D but not improved walking ability for ASIA classification A and B. There is an RCT showed the evidence of repetitive locomotor training and physiotherapy could be improved walking and basic activities of daily living after stroke, these might be also really effect in SCI patients.

Further study details as provided by Ratanapat Chanubol, Prasat Neurological Institute:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Wernig scale [ Time Frame: 4 weeks. ]
    Walking ability classification in spinal cord injury patients.

  • Barthel index [ Time Frame: 4 weeks. ]
    Measure activity of daily living


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Repas [ Time Frame: 4 weeks. ]
    Spasticity measurement

  • Manual muscle testing [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Measure muscle power in each key muscle according to ASIA classification.

  • 10 meter walking test [ Time Frame: 4 weeks. ]
    If patients can walk, measure speed of walking with step length.

  • 6 minute walking test [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    If patient can walk, measure endurance.


Estimated Enrollment: 16
