Abstract :
BernaHead angular stability is essential for postural control in whole body movement. Using the opto-electronic ELITE system, we have studied head orientation during the movements of squatting from the standing position and straightening-up from the squatting position in 12 children with spastic diplegia and 12 age-matched controls. Although no instruction was given regarding the head, diplegic children consistently performed excessive neck flexion in the squatting movement and excessive hyperextension in the straightening-up movement, whereas normal children maintained the initial orientation throughout both movements. We discuss pathophysiological implications.rd Dan, Ethel Bouillot, Ana Bengoetxea, Pierre Noël, André Kahn, Guy Cheron
