Objective

Neuromuscular mechanisms of specific interventions on trunk for children with cerebral palsy.

The primary purpose for this study is to determine the effects of a robotic training on trunk control and walking ability in children with cerebral palsy. We want to understand if repeated application of perturbation force to the trunk and pelvis during walking or sitting may improve trunk control and walking ability.
