Imagerie motrice et amputation du membre inférieur

Abstract : Motor imagery, which refers to the internal representation of a movement, has the potential to impact activity-dependent plasticity. The relevance of motor imagery, as a technique allowing substantial motor performance gains and motor recovery in the field of rehabilitation, has been validated by numerous experimental studies in stroke patients and persons suffering from spinal cord injury. By highlighting the possibility of integrating motor imagery within the framework of lower-limb amputees’ rehabilitation programs, and revealing promising preliminary data regarding locomotion recovery, the results of this thesis broaden the range of people which might benefit from this technique. Data further suggest that motor imagery should specifically focus on functional and bilateral tasks, and that concomitant use of transcranial direct current stimulation should contribute to potentiate the impact of motor imagery on locomotion recovery of lower-limb amputees
