Children with cerebral palsy (CP) have various gait impairments, but there is limited evidence about their gait stability. The gait has shown to be less stable in hemiplegic (HP) children compared to typically developed (TD) controls1. Some gait kinematics are also altered more in CP than TD by concurrent motor2 and cognitive3 tasks.
