Table 2 Protocol of experimental trials

From: Evaluating the effects of delivering integrated kinesthetic and tactile cues to individuals with unilateral hemiparetic stroke during overground walking

Trial Conditions
No Cue Walk
(NCW)
Normal walk in a straight line without any assistance/cue
Subject maintains self-preferred walking speed
Operator calculates the normal gait speed of the subject
Tactile Cue Walk
(TCW)
Walk with only VFD’s tactile cue
Subject maintains self-preferred walking speed
Operator calculates the gait speed
Kinesthetic Cue Walk
(KCW + 0%, KCW + 20%, KCW + 40%)
Walk with only HCD’s kinesthetic cue
Speed is set to normal gait speed + 0%, + 20% and + 40% in separate trials
Integrated Cue Walk
(ICW + 0%, ICW + 20%, ICW + 40%)
Walk with both VFD’s tactile cue and HCD’s kinesthetic cue
Speed is set to normal gait speed + 0%, + 20% and + 40% in separate trials
  1. Two trials per condition were performed with a break of 1 min between iterations
