Relationship between observational Wisconsin Gait Scale and global gait indexes post-stroke


  • Wisconsin Gait Scale (WGS) scores have a strong or very strong correlation with Gait Deviation Index (GDI) and Gait Variability Index (GVI) in patients after stroke.

Why this matters

  • As the effectiveness of the WGS is comparable to both GDI and GVI indexes it may be recommended as a substitute tool for observational assessment of gait in patients after stroke when 3-dimensional gait analysis is unavailable.
