Robot-assisted gait training versus conventional therapy in multiple sclerosis with gait disability

Takeaway

  • Robot-assisted gait training (RAGT) is not superior to conventional therapy (CT; high-intensity over ground walking) in terms of gait speed as well as secondary outcomes in patients with progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and severe gait disability.

Why this matters

  • These observations highlight the necessity of identifying more effective protocols to improve mobility in MS patients with severe disability, enabling tailored rehabilitation.
