, the senior authors (A.J.H. and F.V.W.) conducted a feasibility randomized control trial (RCT) to investigate the effectiveness of two interventions: a FMS-based sport skill training program ( BeFAST ) and a lower limb strength training program ( BeSTRONG ) in children with CP (ClinicalTrials

investigated. 4 – 7 Varying stiffness of AFOs has been shown to affect kinematics and kinetics of lower limb joints during gait in individuals with cerebral palsy 4 and stroke. 5 , 6 A simulation study also showed that the energy cost of gait might be optimized by properly tuning AFO

At the beginning of each intervention, a 5-minute general active ROM for upper and lower extremities was initiated. Then, participants underwent the pretest in the order of flexibility, lower-limb power

The single-leg squat task is used as a rehabilitative exercise 1 , 2 or as a screening tool 3 , 4 for the functional movement of the lower limb. The presence of pathology influences the way in which the single-leg squat is performed. On performing the single-leg squat, individuals with

, and whole body, and were <2% in the lower limbs. To minimize the interobserver variation, all analyses were made by the same technician. Biochemical Markers Measurements All blood samples were obtained from the participants between 08:00 and 09:30 AM after an overnight fast. Blood samples were

Additional outcome measures in rating of perceived exertion (RPE) and a visual analog scale (VAS) measure of lower-limb muscle soreness were also recorded to reflect the perceptual influence of playing surface. Participants Fifteen amateur male soccer players (22

ethics approval. Instrumentation This study used six 100-Hz inertial sensors (Nanotrak; Catapult Sports, Docklands, Australia) to track trunk, pelvis, and lower limb kinematics. Inertial sensors are a validated tool for kinematic analyses ( Cuesta-Vargas, Galán-Mercant, & Williams, 2010 ; Steins, Dawes
