Table 1

Gait disorder scores for patients with late effects of poliomyelitis and for healthy participants. Legend: LEoP group = group including patients with late effects of poliomyelitis; SI = symmetry index; GPS = gait profile score. The GPS is expressed in degree. For the LEoP group, the GPS is computed for the most affected leg, and for the healthy group, it is computed for the dominant leg. The SI is the difference between the more affected side and the less affected side for patients with the LEoP and is the difference between the non-dominant side and the dominant side for the healthy participants. All results are presented as mean ± standard deviation.
