  1. Mean (± SD) values for range of motion of ankle, knee, and hip joints, and foot, thigh, shank, and trunk segments during stride cycle in the three conditions (no harness, 0% of BWS, and 30% of BWS) on nonparetic and paretic body sides of individuals with chronic stroke (n = 13). Note: same letter indicates difference between conditions; same number indicates difference between body sides; * indicates interaction
