Robot-assisted gait training provides numerous benefits in multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • Robot-assisted gait training improves fatigue and spasticity in multiple sclerosis and is safe and well-tolerated.

Why this matters

    This is the most up-to-date evidence that robot-assisted gait training in multiple sclerosis confers additional benefits to traditional methods besides motor function outcomes. It should be considered for people with multiple sclerosis because it is well tolerated and less demanding for physical therapists.
