Modular control of varied locomotor tasks in children with incomplete spinal cord injuries.

Modular control of varied locomotor tasks in children with incomplete spinal cord injuries.

The purpose of this study was to examine neuromuscular control of reciprocal locomotor tasks in children with ISCIs as well as uninjured children. Across both groups of children, lower extremity muscle activation during five reciprocal ...
