Children with cerebral palsy (CP) have various gait impairments, and consequently their gait is less stable compared to typically developed (TD) controls. Gait kinematics are also affected more in CP than TD by concurrent dual and cognitive tasks. Inertial measurement units (IMU) provide efficient tool to quantify gait stability, but the practical value of IMU based gait assessment has not been tested in children with CP.

The gait is less stable in children with cerebral palsy in normal and dual-task gait compared to typically developed peers Piitulainen, Harri; Kulmala, Juha-Pekka; Mäenpää, Helena; Rantalainen, Timo (Elsevier, 2021)There is limited evidence about gait stability and its alteration by concurrent motor and cognitive tasks in children with cerebral palsy (CP). We examined gait stability and how it is altered by constrained cognitive or ...
Michelsen, Josephine S.; Lund, Mai C.; Alkjær, Tine; Finni, Taija; Nielsen, Jens B.; Lorentzen, Jakob (Wiley-Blackwell, 2020)Aim To test whether wearable textile electromyography (EMG) recording systems may detect differences in muscle activity levels during daily activities between children with cerebral palsy (CP) and age‐matched typically ...
A test of the effort equalization hypothesis in children with cerebral palsy who have an asymmetric gait Kulmala, Juha-Pekka; Haakana, Piia; Nurminen, Jussi; Ylitalo, Elina; Niemelä, Tuula; Marttinen Rossi, Essi; Mäenpää, Helena; Piitulainen, Harri (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2022)Healthy people can walk nearly effortlessly thanks to their instinctively adaptive gait patterns that tend to minimize metabolic energy consumption. However, the economy of gait is severely impaired in many neurological ...
Stretch reflex threshold as a measure of spasticity of plantar flexor muscles before and after tailored strength training intervention in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy Hosio, Sanna (2020)CP-vammaisilla lapsilla ja nuorilla on useita oireita. Liikkumisen kannalta yksi haittaavin ja invalidisoivin on spastisuus. Spastisuuden määritelmä on epäselvä ja sen vuoksi mittaamisen ja hoitojen valinnassa ei ole yhtä ...
Acute effects of a robotic ankle exosuit on the gait biomechanics, metabolic cost, and muscle activity during walking in patients with unilateral cerebral palsy Thurston, Maxwell (2021)The ability to walk is important for mobility, community participation, and independence. However, for patients with Cerebral Palsy (CP), walking can be impaired due to these patients’ neuromuscular and musculoskeletal ...
