The aim of this study is to evaluate the foot-contact gait patterns in spastic hemiplegic children of Winters type I and II vs. healthy controls. By means of ‘statistical gait analysis’ we analysed 100-200 gait cycles for each child, obtaining the relative frequency of the main foot-floor gait sequences observed during a walk at self-selected speed. Type I hemiplegic children show 27 % of strides with a ‘normal’ foot-floor contact pattern, while for type II this is observed only in 5% of strides. The more frequently observed abnormal gait cycles are described.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate the foot-contact gait patterns in spastic hemiplegic children of Winters type I and II vs. healthy controls. By means of ‘statistical gait analysis’ we analysed 100-200 gait cycles for each child, obtaining the relative frequency of the main foot-floor gait sequences observed during a walk at self-selected speed. Type I hemiplegic children show 27 % of strides with a ‘normal’ foot-floor contact pattern, while for type II this is observed only in 5% of strides. The more frequently observed abnormal gait cycles are described.
