The results of the analysis of the bioelectrical activity of muscles in patients with cerebral palsy are presented in the paper. It has been established that the dynamic stereotype of walking in children with cerebral palsy is distinguished by excessive involvement in locomotions of calf muscles and rectus muscles of back, with central mechanisms of hypersynchronization of activity of motor units being the main adaptation mechanism in the group of children who can move on their own. Exercises for these muscle groups can be included in the rehabilitation complex.
