Evaluation of the bilateral function in para-athletes with spastic hemiplegia: A model-based clustering approach

Spastic hemiplegia is one of the most common forms of cerebral palsy, in which one side of the body is affected to a greater extent than the other one. Hemiplegia severity (i.e. moderate vs mild forms) is currently used in some Para sports for classification purposes. This study evaluates the sensitivity of several tests of stability (e.g. one-legged stance test), dynamic balance (side-step test), coordination (rapid heel-toe placements), range of movement (backward stepping lunge), and lower limb power (the triple hop distance and the isometric peak force of the knee extensors) to discriminate between the impaired and unimpaired lower extremities’ function in para-athletes with spastic hemiplegia.
