Background: Although perturbation-based balance training (PBT) may be effective in improving reactive balance control and/or reducing fall risk in individuals with stroke, the characteristics of reactive balance responses that improve following PBT have not yet been identified. This study aimed to determine if reactive stepping characteristics and timing in response to support-surface perturbations improved to a greater extent following PBT, compared to traditional balance training. Materials and methods: This study represents a substudy of a multisite randomized controlled trial.
