Supported Speed Treadmill Training Exercise Program (SSTTEP) for Marginally Ambulatory Children with Cerebral Palsy
This study looks at the effects of a 12-week exercise program, consisting of either walking on a treadmill with a portion of body weight supported by an overhead harness, or a functional exercise program on the quality of life, muscle strength and control, coordination, walking, and functional movement of children with cerebral palsy.
