International Society of Biomechanics LogoKat Steele presented our recent work on altered synergies during gait in cerebral palsy and the impact of altered gait patterns at the International Society of Biomechanics conference on July 15, 2015 in Glasgow, Ireland.

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.
