Compared to automatic postural responses to external perturbation, little is known about anticipatory postural adjustments in individuals with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy. In this study, we examined whether anticipatory activation of postural muscles would be observed before voluntary arm movement while standing in individuals with spastic diplegia.(More)
We examined whether individuals with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy (SDCP) have the ability to utilize lower leg muscles in anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) associated with voluntary arm movement while standing, as well as the ability to modulate APAs with changes in the degree of postural perturbation caused by arm movement. Seven individuals with(More)
19 We examined whether individuals with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy have the ability 20 to utilize lower leg muscles in anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) associated with 21 voluntary arm movement while standing, as well as the ability to modulate APAs with 22 changes in the degree of postural perturbation caused by arm movement.
