Ambulater is an equipment designed for training of weight balancing, increasing and activating ambulation, in addition to activating early recognition of body image by visual perceptual stimulation.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the degree of improvement of weight shifting and ambulation using Ambulater in hemiplegics.

The subjects of this study were 25 hemiplegics who received gait training using Ambulater from August of 1986 to April of 1987.

The results were as follows:

1) Regardless of visual perceptual stimulation, the therapeutic result was significantly effective in the group who trained over 4 weeks.

2) The therapeutic effect in the right hemiplegic group was better than that in the left hemiplegics.

Key Words: Ambulator, Gait training, Hemiplegia, Stroke
