ADDED VALUE OF DYNAMIC EMG FOR CLINICAL APPROPRIATENESS

2021-06-11T18:23:31+02:00December 20th, 2019|

The assessment of equino-varus foot deformity  The equino-varus foot deformity in post-stroke patients is caused by several factors, that differently combine together in each individual and affect his gait. Therefore, it is appropriate to carry out assessments in dynamic conditions, but the observation of gait by clinicians alone may not be sufficient to differentiate the multiple causes, [...]
