We hope you, your patients, and families are all safe and healthy during the current pandemic. We have a number of outstanding articles in the July issue to support your clinical practice and research. In a scoping review Moncion and colleagues describe the nature and extent of barriers and facilitators to aerobic exercise implementation with adults post stroke. Nilsson and colleagues examined how prevalence and severity of fall-related activity avoidance evolve over a 3-year period in people with Parkinson disease. Nordahl and Ellis provide a Clinical Point of View commentary on the study by Nilsson et al. Ryan and colleagues examined if interventions targeting spatiotemporal gait symmetry in people with stroke could improve walking endurance, balance, quality of life and physical activity. Bishop and colleagues evaluated the feasibility and initial efficacy of treadmill based locomotor training with robotic pelvic assist and visual feedback to improve force and stance symmetry in individuals with stroke. Alshebber and colleagues report on the psychometric properties of the Life Space Assessment in people with vestibular disorders. In case report, Fillmore and colleagues describe a LSVT BIG intervention and its outcome for an individual with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus.
