Introduction
Health researcher specialized on biomechanical assessment of gait and posture in healthy and physically disabled subjects. Recently focusing on ultrasound assessment of muscle architecture in children with cerebral palsy and its relation to strength development, gait, and function. Growing interest in the use of contact-improvisation for postural control rehabilitation.

Background Haemophilia A (HA) has been associated with poor health-related quality of life and a large economic burden, accentuated by severity, arthropathy, and inhibitors. To meet global standards of care, the management of HA should align with the principles of care outlined by the World Federation of Haemophilia. The aims of the present study w...

Purpose: To determine the impact of non-cardiovascular comorbidities on the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Methods: A scoping review of the scientific literature published between 2009 and 2019 was carried out. Observational studies which assessed the HRQoL of patients with CHF using validate...

Background The use of robotic trainers has increased with the aim of improving gait function in patients with limitations. Nevertheless, there is an absence of studies that deeply describe detailed guidelines of how to correctly implement robot-based treatments for gait rehabilitation. This contribution proposes an accurate robot-based training pro...
Conference Paper
Background: With growth, fascicle lengths increase through sarcomere addition to maintain force production capacity. However, children with cerebral palsy (CP) present a reduced number of in-series sarcomeres. Regarding fascicle lengths of the medial gastrocnemius (MG) in children with CP, some studies have shown smaller fascicle lengths than typic...
Article
Full-text available
To compare medial gastrocnemius muscle-tendon structure, gait propulsive forces, and ankle joint gait kinetics between typically developing children and those with spastic cerebral palsy, and to describe significant associations between structure and function in children with spastic cerebral palsy. A sample of typically developing children (n = 9...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Gait limitation is one of the main impairments in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). Robotic trainers appeared with the aim of improving the traditional therapies, and its use has been increased in the last years. However, so far there are not guidelines that deeply describe how to correctly implement robot-based gait treatments. This contribution...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
El uso de dispositivos robóticos para rehabilitación de la marcha se ha incrementado en los últimos años de manera notable. Sin embargo, hay una falta de estudios que proporcionen pautas detalladas sobre cómo usar la robótica de rehabilitación para obtener los máximos beneficios del tratamiento. Esta contribución presenta un programa de entrenamien...
Article
Tissue related ankle hyper-resistance has been reported to contribute to equinus gait in children with spastic cerebral palsy. Hence, ankle plantarflexor stretching programs have been developed in order to restore passive ankle dorsiflexion. Despite high quality evidence on the limited effects of stretching on passive joint mobility, further muscle...
Article
Full-text available
Muscle fascicles lengthen in response to chronic passive stretch through in-series sarcomere addition in order to maintain an optimum sarcomere length. In turn, the muscles’ force generating capacity, maximum excursion, and contraction velocity is enhanced. Thus, longer fascicles suggest a greater capacity to develop joint power and work. However,...

Descriptive study on lower limb pain caused by spasticity in children with spastic type cerebral palsy.
Conference Paper
Eccentric and explosive strength training have the potential to stimulate in-series sarcomere addition in children with cerebral palsy (CP), as previously seen in typically developing children. This adaptation would enable greater muscle power generation. Similarly to previously used ankle robotic therapy, we believe the CPWalker robotic platform i...

1. Background: With growth, fascicle lengths increase through sarcomere addition to maintain force production(1), however, children with cerebral palsy (CP) present in-series sarcomere reduction(2). Regarding fascicle lengths of the medial gastrocnemius (MG) in children with CP, some studies show smaller fascicle lengths than typically developing (...
Conference Paper
Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a disorder of posture and movement due to an imperfection or lesion in the immature brain. CP is often associated to sensory deficits, cognition impairments, communication and motor disabilities, behaviour issues, seizure disorder, pain and secondary musculoskeletal problems. New strategies are needed to help to promote, main...

Article
Full-text available
Cerebral Palsy (CP) is one of the most severe disabilities in childhood, and it demands important costs in health, education, and social services. CP is caused by damage to or abnormalities inside the developing brain that disrupt the brain’s ability to control movement and maintain posture. Furthermore, CP is often associated with sensory deficits...

Descriptive study on the muscle architecture of the medial gastrocnemius in children with cerebral palsy.
Article
Evaluation of muscle structure gives us a better understanding of how muscles contribute to force generation which is significantly altered in children with cerebral palsy (CP). While most muscle structure parameters have shown to be significantly correlated to different expressions of strength development in children with CP and typically developi...
