The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the differences in the dynamic gait stability of children with cerebral palsy (CP) and typically developing (TD) children. The participants walked on a treadmill for 2 min as a motion capture system assessed the walking kinematics. Floquet analysis was used to quantify the rate of dissipation of disturbances(More)
PURPOSE To examine the feasibility of using lower body positive pressure supported (LBPPS) treadmill training to improve the walking abilities, balance and lower extremity strength of children with cerebral palsy (CP). METHODS Nine children with CP (GMFCS II-IV) participated in LBPPS treadmill training 2 days per week for 6 weeks. Pre and post training(More)
Evidence obtained from experimental animals and man indicates that reentry is a major mechanism underlying arrhythmogenesis. However, focal or nonreentrant mechanisms also appear to be operative under a wide variety of pathophysiologic conditions. For example, results obtained using three-dimensional (3D) mapping from 232 simultaneous sites in the feline(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE It has been previously shown that body weight-supported treadmill training (BWSTT) can improve the walking performance of children with cerebral palsy (CP). Potentially, the sensorimotor experience from BWSTT may facilitate reorganization of the brain areas that are involved in the control of the stepping pattern. We explored whether(More)
