BACKGROUND Information on altered foot pressures during ambulation would clarify how far limb deformities modify walking patterns in cerebral palsy (CP), and whether such data can inform prognosis and guide rehabilitation. OBJECTIVE To compare patterns of plantar pressures during walking between children with CP and their able-bodied (AB) peers. METHODS(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to determine whether changes in surface electromyography (EMG) data during an isometric muscle protocol, in combination with maximal voluntary isometric force, provide information on fatigue occurrence and exercise limitation in children with cerebral palsy. Twelve children with cerebral palsy and 10 age-matched(More)
BACKGROUND Gait cycle and pressure distribution patterns can now be recorded quite simply and reproducibly with inexpensive in-sole pressure recorders. However, it is not known whether such readings are sufficiently stable to provide useful information in monitoring children with spastic hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP). OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was(More)
