Abstract

The trunk and pelvis are affected after stroke, predisposing individuals to falls and dependency. The aim of this review was to describe the lineal and angular kinematics of the trunk and pelvis in patients with post-stroke sequels during walking. We included studies published up to June 1918 using a 2-3 D motion capture system during walking. We searched the Cochrane, Medline, PEDRo, Lilacs, Scielo, EBSCO, ClinicalKey and Elsevier databases. Twelve articles were selected. Linear kinematics showed greater lateral displacement and acceleration in all axes. Angular kinematics in the swing phase of the paretic segment showed the pelvis in posterior rotation, with elevation and lower velocity and the trunk in anterior flexion, with lateral inclination and ipsilateral rotation. The studies showed wide variability, making it impossible to establish of a common effect. However, the results allow description of the movement of the trunk and pelvis.
