“Poststroke Postural Sway Improved by Botulinum Toxin: A Multicenter Randomized Double-blind Controlled Trial”
We read the article by Kerzoncuf et  al1 with great interest. We appreciate the authors’ efforts to assess the effects of injecting botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) into the lower limb muscles of people with hemiparesis post stroke. However, we have 2 concerns that may alter their conclusion.

Measurement Characteristics and Clinical Utility of the Participation With Recombined Tools-Objective Measure in a Traumatic Brain Injury Population
Participation is the measure of the amount and types of meaningful activities a person engages in at a societal level.1 Participation of people with disability in society is a primary aim of rehabilitation and yet definitions vary, and it is often not measured or reported.1 Participation With Recombined Tools-Objective (PART-O) is a National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke traumatic brain injury (TBI) common data element that measures frequencies of participation within the subdomains of productivity, social interaction, and out and about.

Response to Letter to the Editor
We thank Dr Jang for his interest in our recent article titled “The Effects of a Robot-Assisted Arm Training Plus Hand Functional Electrical Stimulation on Recovery After Stroke: A Randomized Clinical Trial.”1 He suggests considering stroke site lesion, arm severity, and corticospinal tract (CST) integrity as potential sources of bias in our results, given that all these variables can affect spontaneous recovery in a subacute phase after stroke. His useful comments point toward some methodologic issues that are shared by most upper limb stroke rehabilitation research.
