Spasticity is a common impairment that interferes with motor function (particularly gait pattern) in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Gait analysis and clinical measurements are equally important in evaluating and treating gait disorders in children with CP. This study aimed to explore the relationship between the spasticity of lower extremity muscles and(More)
In some applications it is important to detect the QRS complex in the ECG waveform with possibly low time delay. Traditional software detectors of the QRS complex implement algorithms usually based on cascades of digital filters that introduce delays up to parts of a second. On the other hand, hardware QRS detectors fulfil the low delay requirements, but(More)
The paper proposes a new approach to the analysis of the human postural stability. In this method, based on parametric representation of the center of pressure (COP) trajectory, a new one-dimensional signal is calculated. The use of the signal results in a reduction of the problem complexity and makes possible defining of new parameters that describe(More)
Development of a reliable and objective test of spasticity is important for assessment and treatment of children with cerebral palsy. The pendulum test has been reported to yield reliable measurements of spasticity and to be sensitive to variations in spasticity in these children. However, the relationship between the pendulum test scores and other(More)
