Abstract

There is no evidence of improved locomotor coordination postintervention. The increased walking and pedaling speed was likely achieved by a more proficient use of the same impaired pattern without EMG timing changes, likely because of increased strength and endurance postintervention. A more task-specific intervention may be required to improve coordination, consistent with principles of use-dependent plasticity.
