  • Learning Patterns of Pivoting Neuromuscular Control Training-Towards a Learning Model

    Over the last decades, lower limb therapy using locomotion devices has been used; however, how the learning patterns over the course of a long-term training program change are unknown. The purpose of this study was to investigate the learning patterns in leg pivoting neuromuscular control performance over six-week pivoting neuromuscular control training (POINT) among 20 healthy subjects. Overall, learning patterns could be characterized by learning curve models such as the power law and exponential curve. The findings and models can potentially be used to develop more effective subject-specific therapy scheduling and gait therapy protocol.
