Nine subjects (12 sides) with cerebral palsy who walked in equnius were evaluated prior to and 1 year after surgical tendo Achilles lengthening. Gastrocnemius and soleus length [Gait Posture, 6 (1997) 9] and plantarflexor force [Gait Posture, 6 (1997) 9; J Biomech, 23 (1990) 495] were calculated. The length of the gastrocnemius and soleus increased significantly (P<0.01) following the intervention. Force output of the triceps surae during push-off increased significantly (13.95 N/kg body weight… CONTINUE READING
