Presence of Propulsive Reserve?

Hear from Mike Lewek, PT, PhD from UNC Chapel Hill in this highlighted clip as he introduces his research around the concept of a “Propulsive Reserve” – the idea that patients post-stroke have the inherent capacity to produce more propulsion force on their paretic side, and that, when exposed to the right set of circumstances […]
