Cerebral palsy is a condition that results in varying degrees of functional deficits. The goal of this study was to develop an objective measure of muscle activity during a prescribed voluntary motor task in non-ambulatory children with spastic cerebral palsy. While performing a simultaneous hip/knee flexion task from the supine position, followed by return to the starting position, electromyographic and kinematic data were obtained from the right leg of eight children before and after… CONTINUE READING
