Residual neurological deficits from stroke lead to gait inefficiencies, resulting in an
extremely high energy cost of movement and contributing to overall disability and lower
quality of life. Therefore, interventions targeting movement economy should be developed for
those in the chronic phase of stroke recovery. This study is designed to compare the effect
of two distinctly different exercise paradigms (a higher-intensity treadmill training program
and a lower-intensity group exercise program) on economy of movement during over-ground
walking and activities of daily living, as well as the extent to which gains in muscular
strength, muscular endurance, and balance predict changes in movement economy.
