This study examines inter-rater reliability between physiotherapists using the Pirani scoring system for clubfoot, and whether the addition of two scale points to give a modified five-point severity scale improves reliability. A total of 65 infant feet were assessed by two raters, with 21 different rater combinations used. The Pirani scoring system was(More)
AIMS To determine whether electrical stimulation (ES) following botulinum toxin A (BoNT/A) injection increases passive extensibility of the hamstring muscles in children with spastic diplegia. METHODS Six children undergoing bilateral BoNT/A injections to the hamstrings participated in this within-participant single blind randomized controlled trial. One(More)
We report on a female patient with stiff-knee gait resulting from rectus femoris fibrosis, following multiple injections into the quadriceps musculature. Treatment planning and outcome were aided by instrumented three-dimensional gait analysis. One year after surgery, improvements were found in walking speed, step length, anterior pelvic tilt, knee flexion(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to establish normative reference values for spatiotemporal and plantar pressure parameters, and to investigate the influence of demographic, anthropometric and physical characteristics. METHODS In 1000 healthy males and females aged 3-101 years, spatiotemporal and plantar pressure data were collected barefoot with(More)
Pedobarography and the centre of pressure (COP) progression is useful to understand foot function. Pedobarography is often unavailable in gait laboratories or completed asynchronously to kinematic and kinetic data collection. This paper presents a model that allows calculation of COP progression synchronously using force plate data. The model is an adjunct(More)
Normative reference values are essential to identify deviation from normal and evaluate response to treatment. As joint range of motion datasets specific to the pediatric population are infrequently reported in the literature, we determined lower limb passive joint range of motion and bone torsion values from 53 typically developing children aged 4-16(More)
