This study evaluated the biomechanical and electromyographic effects of conventional ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) and dynamic ankle foot orthoses (DAFOs) on gait in patients with spastic cerebral palsy (CP). Thirteen patients with dynamic equinus underwent motion analysis with electromyography. Both AFOs and DAFOs provided longer stride length, permitted pre-positioning for initial contact, and successfully controlled the excessive plantarflexion during the swing phase. Median frequency (MF) of… CONTINUE READING
