- To what extent is mean EMG frequency during gait a reflection of functional muscle strength in children with cerebral palsy?L Van Gestel
KU Leuven, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, Tervuursevest, Heverlee, Belgium
Res Dev Disabil 33:916-23. 2012..These findings underscore the potential of the mean EMG frequency recorded during 3DGA, for the evaluation of functional muscle strength in children with CP...
- Effect of dynamic orthoses on gait: a retrospective control study in children with hemiplegiaLeen Van Gestel
Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium
Dev Med Child Neurol 50:63-7. 2008..In general, the results of this study indicated a substantial functional flexibility of the CFO...

Res Dev Disabil 34:1689-99. 2013..5 cm), while effects of walking speed (≈ 20 cm per m/s increase in walking speed) and group (≈ 5 cm) were much larger. These results suggest that the FPE may be used to quantify gait stability in TD children and children with CP...
- Altered arm posture in children with cerebral palsy is related to instability during walkingPieter Meyns
Department of Kinesiology, KU Leuven, Heverlee, Belgium
Eur J Paediatr Neurol 16:528-35. 2012..Toddlers learning to walk adopt specific 'guard' arm postures to maintain their balance during forward progression. In Cerebral Palsy (CP), the cause of the altered arm postures during walking has not been studied...
- Is interlimb coordination during walking preserved in children with cerebral palsy?Pieter Meyns
Department of Kinesiology, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, KU Leuven, Heverlee, Belgium
Res Dev Disabil 33:1418-28. 2012..The compensating (non-affected) arm primarily affected coordinative stability, which underlines the importance of active arm movements in HE. Increasing walking speed may be used to improve interlimb coordination in DI...

- Macrostructural and Microstructural Brain Lesions Relate to Gait Pathology in Children With Cerebral PalsyPieter Meyns
Department of Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy, Ghent University, Belgium Movement control and neuroplasticity, Department of Kinesiology, KU Leuven, Belgium
Neurorehabil Neural Repair 30:817-33. 2016..Conclusions These results indicate that the combined influence of multiple brain lesions and their impact on the primary motor deficits might explain a large part of the gait pathology in sCP. ..
