Summary:
Locomotor Training: Principles and Practice is the first comprehensive book describing the scientific foundation for this therapy; the principles guiding locomotor training; the specific hands-on-skills, decision-making, and progression of recovery applied across three training components: step training on the treadmill, over ground assessment, and community integration.
