    Abstract

    The effect of electrical stimulation of the anterior tibial muscles of children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy was studied. 10 children received electrical stimulation, applied by their parents daily for an hour for 35 days; they were compared with 10 matched controls. Active and passive ranges of movement of the ankle, and knee and ankle motion during walking were measured before and after therapy using electrogoniometers. The results showed a significant increase in passive range of movement among children receiving electrical stimulation. Gait analysis of knee and ankle motion showed little change.
