Alashram, Giuseppe Annino, Nicola Biagio MercuriAbstractWalking impairments consider one from common secondary impairments post-traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI). As the evidence showed that RAS is effective in improving the gait ability in those with other neurological disorders, we propose that RAS is also effective in those with TBI and SCI. The aim was to test our hypothesis. Two pilot studies were included. In the first study, eight individuals with TBI participated in RAS experimental 1....
