Abstract

This work challenges concepts of task-specific training for the rehabilitation of walking and encourages coordinated training of the arms and legs after spinal cord injury. Cycling of the legs produced significant improvements in walking that were similar in magnitude to those reported with gait-specific training. Moreover, active engagement of the arms simultaneously with the legs generated nearly double the improvements obtained by leg training only. The cervico-lumbar networks are critical for the improvement of walking.
