The impact of stochastic resonance as a complement to physiotherapy in the reeducation of locomotion in patients with multiple sclerosis
Mateusz Bartczyk, Andrzej Suchanowski, Marta Woldańska-Okońska, Jakub Świderski
Patients with multiple sclerosis most often pay attention to gait with a broad base with deteriorating balance when initiating locomotion or changing direction. The use of the stochastic resonance method enforces mechanical vibrations, which are characterized by the variability of rhythm, amplitude and direction of vibrations, which enforces postural adjustment regulated by the CNS (Central Nervous System) analysis and response to stimuli that disturb the body’s balance.
