There are several traditional and nontraditional strategies available for the rehabilitation of ambulatory limitations in adults with central neurologic disorders. Traditional strategies may include therapies such as exercise training and conventional gait training. Nontraditional rehabilitation strategies typically involve advanced therapeutic technologies or devices. We describe several ambulatory rehabilitation strategies providing advantages, disadvantages, and common applications of these modalities. Feasibility, cost effectiveness, accessibility, and training specificity of the various modalities are also compared. Rehabilitation strategies should be selected based on the specific ambulatory impairments and rehabilitation needs of each patient.
