Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of robotic-assisted gait training (RAGT) in improving the functional outcomes among stroke survivors Design: Retrospective matched control study. Setting: Inpatients stroke unit, Qatar Rehabilitation Institute. Outcome Measures: The Functional Ambulation classification (FAC), The Functional independence measure (FIM), The Berg Balance Scale (BBS), The Dynamic Gait index (DGI), The Ten-meter walk test (10MWT), The timed up and Go test (TUG) and the Five times sit to stand (5XSTS) Data Analysis: A retrospective comparison of stroke patients who received robotic assisted gait training performed statistically using the 20th version of SPSS statistical package (SPSS Inc. Chicago, IL, USA) Study Procedures: The investigators reviewed the medical records, the physiotherapy treatment sessions records and data from the Clinical Management System of Qatar rehabilitation institute of the patients during the period from 1stJanuary 2018 to 31 December 2019. RAGT group was created to assign the patients who received more than four RAGT sessions. The other group was created from the patients who completed the stroke rehabilitation program without RAGT to cross match Conclusion: All the outcome measures were compared between admission and discharge regardless of their group and found that there was a good improvement in the outcome and statistically significant (p value 0.0001) While comparing the lokomat and non lokomat group in functional outcome measurements lokomat group (RAGT) had significant improvement in discharge scores.
