BACKGROUND Children with spastic hemiplegic cerebral palsy are restricted in their daily activities due to limited active ranges of motion of their involved upper limb, specifically at the elbow. Their impaired muscles are frequently targeted by anti-spastic treatments that reduce muscle tone. But these treatments do not necessarily improve the limb function. There is a lack of comprehensive knowledge of the quantitative relations between muscle activation and joint active ranges of motion… CONTINUE READING
