NeuroRehabilitation, an international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, publishes manuscripts focused on scientifically based, practical information relevant to all aspects of neurologic rehabilitation. We publish unsolicited papers detailing original work/research that covers the full life span and range of neurological disabilities including stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, neuromuscular disease and other neurological disorders.
We also publish thematically organized issues that focus on specific clinical disorders, types of therapy and age groups. Proposals for thematic issues and suggestions for issue editors are welcomed.

Abstract: BACKGROUND: An intensive task-oriented circuit training (TOCT) provides a valid approach in improving motor function in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). OBJECTIVE: We aimed at testing the efficacy of TOCT on gait kinematics in MS patients with mild-moderate disability. METHODS: Nineteen MS patients able of independent walking performed 3-D Gait Analysis before (T0) and after (T1) a two-week TOCT program. Patients were clustered in two different subgroups, according to clinical neurological impairments assessed with specific functional system of Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS): pyramidal (Group 1) and cerebellar (Group 2) subjects. Spatio-temporal and kinematic data were compared before …and after the TOCT intervention in the total sample of patients and in the two selected subgroups at two time intervals. RESULTS: Data obtained revealed increased dynamic ROM at knee joint after training in the whole study sample. Of note, knee dynamic excursion improved significantly in Group 1 but not in Group 2 patients after TOCT. Moreover, sagittal plane kinematics revealed significant modifications on knee and ankle biomechanics in Group 1 after rehabilitation. CONCLUSIONS: These data point out the benefits of the task specific training on gait dynamics in mild impaired MS subjects, linking to treatment opportunity in patients with a prevalent pyramidal impairment.
