Values are expressed as mean (SD)

Experimental group, treadmill gait training with taping on the affected ankle joint; Control group, general treadmill gait training 3 MWD, 3-minute walking distance; TUG, timed up and go test; COP, center of pressure.

aSignificanlty different (p<.05) from the pre-tests

bSignificanlty different (p<.05) in gains between the two groups
