MH Schwartz, A Rozumalski, KM Steele, “Dynamic motor control during walking predicts treatment outcomes in cerebral palsy.” International Society of Biomechanics (Glasgow, UK) July 13, 2015.

International Society of Biomechanics LogoKat Steele & Mike Schwartz presented their research demonstrating that synergies measured from EMG are predictive of post-operative outcomes after botulinum toxin injections, selective dorsal rhizotomy, and multi-level orthopaedic surgery. These results will support future research to determine if synergies can be used clinically to quantify patient-specific changes in control and guide treatment planning.
