Abstract [en]

After a stroke, gait and balance are often affected and an orthosis is typically required to facilitate postural control. This study has been conducted to examine how the Range of Motion in an Ankle-Foot-Orthosis (AFO) impacts on stroke patients’ dynamic balance. It was hypothesized that better dynamic balance would be recorded when individuals were wearing a flexible AFO. The tests that was used in this study were the Timed Up and Go test (TUG), and the Center of Pressure (CoP)/Center of Mass (CoM) inclination angle, both in Anterior-Posterior (AP) and Medio-Lateral (ML) planes. The three patients participating in this study were all users, or had been users of AFO’s, and during the study they were asked to wear a customized AFO with the possibility to change the settings to open, flexible and rigid ankle joints. The order was randomized within each patient. No clear pattern was observed across all patients, either in the TUG test or CoP/CoM inclination angles. Further studies are required to explore the impact that AFO flexibility has on dynamic balance in individuals who have had a stroke.
