Using Robotic Exoskeletons for Walking Rehabilitation Among Stroke Survivors with Spatial Neglect

The goal of this study is to understand the mechanism of improved walking with exoskeleton training in spatial neglect patients and help generate new, effective methods of walk training for these patients.
Duration

Participants must already be enrolled in an exoskeleton study at Kessler Foundation. Participation in this study will last for the duration of the study for which you are already enrolled. 

Inclusion Criteria
  • Individuals aged 18-99.
  • Able to comply with study, verbal instructions, and follow-up requirements.
  • Had a stroke less than 12 months ago and may not display symptoms of spatial neglect.
  • Able to undergo MRI scans (no claustrophobia, pacemaker, metal implant, dentures with magnetic keepers, or aneurysm clips).
Compensation

$60, $10 if participants can only complete the first set of behavioral assessments and MRI scans.
