Objective

This study is to help us learn whether physiotherapists should use the Lokomat with children with CP. We also want to provide parents with information about effective treatments. Each child in the study will receive 8 to 10 weeks of research therapy in the Lokomat, a physiotherapy program, or a combination of Lokomat and physiotherapy, or be in a group that just keeps on with their usual home program of stretching and walking (control group).
