Host Jackie Loeshelle is joined by Dr. George Hornby for a Part II discussion on the Locomotor CPG. The Locomotor CPG identifies the most optimal interventions for gait recovery based on current evidence for individuals with chronic stroke, incomplete spinal cord injury, and traumatic brain injury. This episode delves deeper into the background and design of the CPG, how the literature search occurred, and how the authors interpreted results to develop recommendations. Dr. Hornby also discusses implementation and audit strategies for high intensity gait training in the clinical setting.
