OBJECTIVE To define upper-limb movement deficits in children with hemiplegia using 3-dimensional (3-D) kinematic analysis of functional tasks. DESIGN Cohort study. SETTING University gait laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Ten children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (mean age, 13.3y; range, 10-17y) and 10 control children (mean age, 9.8y; range, 6-12y). INTERVENTIONS Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE 3-D upper-limb movement analysis. RESULTS 3-D kinematics detected clinically significant… CONTINUE READING
