Abstract

Walking is a key human function that is significantly impaired in many stroke survivors. Measuring walking speed poststroke is a valuable method to evaluate function, quality of life, discharge location, and mortality. The following article discusses the effect of stroke on walking, the underlying causes for walking impairments in stroke survivors, spontaneous recovery of walking in stroke survivors, and rehabilitation-mediated recovery of walking in stroke survivors.
