The name of the award is the 2019 AHA Predoctoral Fellowship, the award period spans between 1/1/2019 and 12/31/2020. The total amount awarded over the two years $53,688. The project we submitted is titled Optimizing Gait Propulsion Training in People with Stroke. Propulsion in the force we used to push off the ground in walking to achieve forward movement. Decreased propulsion after stroke in the paretic (weaker) leg is related to poor walking function, and increasing it may lead to improved walking outcomes. The overall objective of the project is to evaluate the effectiveness of a novel device called the gait propulsion trainer (GPT) to train propulsion after stroke.
