This article is from Journal of Physical Therapy Science, volume 26.AbstractPurpose The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of underwater treadmill gait training on the balance ability of stroke patients. Subjects Twenty-two patients with stroke were randomly assigned to an underwater treadmill group n =11 or a control group n =11. Methods Both groups received general rehabilitation for 30 min per session, 5 times per week, over a 4-week period. The underwater treadmill group received additional underwater gait training for 30 min per session, 5 times per week, over the same 4-week period. Static and dynamic balances were evaluated before and after the intervention. Results The means of static and dynamic balance ability increased significantly in both groups, but there was no significant difference between the two groups. Conclusion Compared to the general rehabilitation program, underwater treadmill gait training was not more effective at improving the balance ability of stroke patients than land-based training.
