Doing Robot-Guided Ankle Exercises At Home Can Help Improve Walking Skills for Children with Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common movement-related disability in children. CP is caused by brain damage early in life that can limit the brain’s ability to control muscle movements. Although many children with CP can walk with or without assistive devices, they may develop stiffness or spasms in their muscles crossing the ankle, causing difficulties with gait, balance, or long-distance walking. A combination of stretching and strength-building ankle training exercises can help children with CP improve their walking abilities.
