Clinical Videos

In this video, we see a patient attempting to walk as quickly as she can, while engaging in a challenging auditory distraction. Her single-task high-speed gait for this distance is 6.60 seconds. She accomplishes this effort in nearly 11 seconds, revealing the shared resources and lack of automaticity in her gait, during recovery from stroke. In contrast, she was able to prioritize gait speed and achieve a 5.59 second performance while dialing numbers on her cell phone that were shouted out from the physiotherapy crowd here in Iceland. Was the auditory component of that task not challenging enough to interfere? Were the two auditory tasks processed differently, with one having more perceptual responsibilities (reversing the letters in a 5 letter word), or was the manual vs. verbal output the difference?
