Walking with a falling foot is one of the most common disorders associated with cerebral palsy (CP). This disorder is characterized by the inability to lift the foot due to weakness of the lifting muscles of the foot.
This project is one of the first to examine the effects of complex (precision) locomotor exercise on improving the walking of people with cerebral palsy.
- Objective – To test whether locomotor exercise with augmented reality would help the brain to improve walking in living people with cerebral palsy compared to a control group.
