Title: Robotic Gait Training Improves Locomotor Function in Children with Cerebral Palsy
The purpose of the proposed research is to improve the efficacy of body weight supported treadmill training (BWSTT) in children with cerebral palsy (CP) using a novel robotic therapy that applies controlled force to the leg during treadmill walking.

Title: 3D Pediatric Robotic Gait Training Improves Locomotor Function in Children with CP
The goal of this proposed study is to develop and test a novel 3D pediatric robotic gait training system that applies controlled forces in both the sagittal and frontal planes and allows a naturalistic 3D stepping during treadmill training.

Title: Robotic pelvis manipulation improves dynamic balance and walking in children with cerebral palsy
The goal of this proposed study is to explore motor adaptation to a controlled 3 dimensional (3D) perturbation force applied at the pelvis during sitting astride in children with cerebral palsy (CP) and test whether repeat exposure of pelvis perturbation will help to improve balance and mobility of children with CP.
