Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common lifelong disability affecting motor development in children. The goals of this CEU course are to investigate spastic hemiparesis recovery after intensive technology-enhanced physical rehabilitation; the effects of manipulating object shape, size, and weight combined with hand-arm bimanual intensive training; the effects of modified Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT); and the effects of repetitive Transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS).
Limitations in ankle dorsiflexion have been associated with balance dysfunction and the development of altered gait patterns. The goal of this CEU course is to investigate the relationship of ankle dorsiflexion, measured in non-weight bearing and weight bearing positions, to balance and gait performance in healthy young and older adults.
