Abstract

Impedance plethysmography tests were used to obtain the regional blood flow profiling data (prior and after physical exercises) in children with mobility limitations - particularly caused to cerebral palsy (CP). The study diagnosed the subject CP-sick children with low vegetative support of the distal limb segments, whilst the proximal segments were found to retain some functional reserve. This finding gives the reasons to recommend mostly the thigh muscles being loaded and the shin muscles being released in the adaptive motor skills stereotyping process.
