The article presents research studies that demonstrate the effects of body weight support (BWS) treadmill training for the treatment of spinal cord injuries in the U.S. Dr. A. L. Hicks study showed the effects of BWS including life satisfaction, physical function and improved muscle mass. Dr. Bruce Dobkin compared BWS with an over-ground mobility training.which showed no differences between the two programs. Dr. Marcus Wirz study showed better gait speed, endurance and function of daily tasks.
