The purpose of this study was to identify the effect of submerged treadmill gait training on gait and static balance of people with hemiparesis. Thirteen patients with hemiparesis were randomly assigned to either the experimental group(EG) that performed a submerged treadmill training, or control group(CG) that carried out a general treadmill training, with 7 and 6 subjects respectively. The treadmill training of the two groups was conducted for 30 minutes. Gait and balance function of the subjects were assessed by a 10-m walk test(10MWT) test and a timed up and go(TUG) test, and balance measurement system before and after the intervention period. Gait function(10MWT and TUG) of th EG was significantly improved after the intervention(p<.05), but not for the CG(p>.05). Significant difference did not appear in static balance scores between the groups (p>.05). These findings suggest that the use of an submerged treadmill training may be beneficial in improving gait function of people with hemiparesis. Thus, the submerged treadmill training may be clinically used as an adjunct for gait training of people with hemiparesis.
