The Biomedical Engineering Department of the University of Strathclyde would like to recruit stroke patients in order to study the performance of load sensors attached to a lower leg splint during walking.
This sensor allows the measurement of forces and bending or twisting actions on the splint generated during walking. This study aims to gain a thorough understanding of ankle joint load during walking in stroke patients and the effects of wearing leg splint on this load. The results of this study may influence clinical decision making in choosing splint design and material that best matches the patient needs.
Travelling expenses incurred will be reimbursed

-No or mild to moderate spasticity
-Using leg splint
-Able to give informed consent.
-Over 18 years of age
-Able to walk without walking aids up to 3minutes
