Abstract

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common cause of permanent serious physical disability in childhood. CPWalker is a robotic platform through which the child can start experiencing autonomous locomotion in a rehabilitation environment. The main objective of this work is to biomechanically compare difference conditions of gait assistance in Children with CP using CPWalker.The results showed some differences among three patients with different conditions in terms of gait parameters, pelvic angles and propulsion. The observed changes during the therapy show the potential of this rehabilitation device.
