        There are several errors in the article Iwata M, Kondo I, Sato Y, Satoh K, Soma M, and Tsusuhima E. An ankle-foot orthosis with inhibitor bar: effect on hemiplegic gait, published in Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 2003;84:924-7 (
        In the abstract, 2 values in the Results subsection were misstated. The text should have read “In the TTFR group, use of an inhibitor bar for 2 weeks significantly increased the maximal walking speed, stride length, and cadence by 13.8% (P=.0045), 8.0% (P=.0438), and 5.6% (P=.0037), respectively. There were no significant changes in the control group.” In the Results section of the article, several values were misstated. The text should have read “Stride length. The inhibitor bar also increased stride length by 8.0%, from 70.3±20.2cm to 76.0±23.2cm, in the TTFR group (P=.0438); the increase in the control group was 0.6% (from 71.6±11.6cm to 72.0±11.9cm) (fig 4B). Cadence. Cadence significantly increased by 5.6% in the TTFR group (P=.0037); the values before and after an inhibitor bar attachment were 82.6±23.2 steps/min and 86.5±22.1 steps/min, respectively. The increase in the rate in the control group was 0.5%, from 70.4±29.0 steps/min to 70.8±29.1 steps/min (fig 4C).” Figure 4 contained incorrect values. The corrected figure is shown here.
