Unnithan, V., Dowling, J., Frost, G., & Bar-or, O. (1999). Role of mechanical power estimates in the O2 cost of walking in children with cerebral palsy. Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, 31(12), 1703-1713.Purpose
This study was designed to estimate the ability of a mechanical power calculation to explain the variability in the metabolic energy cost of walking on a treadmill in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP).
