  1. The table describes the change in the Tinetti Gait, Tinetti Balance, and Walking Speed during the Body Weight Support Robotic Gait Trainer (BWSRGT) training (0-4 weeks); during the Manual Gait Training (MGT) period (4-8 weeks); and the change over the 8-weeks total of intensive rehabilitation period. Subjects with initial FAC 2 and 3 showed significant improvement in walking speed across the robotic training period. (*) p < 0.05.
