Abstract

This report offers an appraisal of a 2017 article published in Scientific Reports regarding the use of robotic exoskeletons in children and adolescents with crouch gait from Cerebral Palsy. The clinical question that led in the selection of this article are introduced, followed by a description of the methods used to find this work. A summary of the chosen article can be found in the results section, as well as an appraisal of the introduction, methods, results, and discussion individually. This precedes the discussion about the clinical significance and relevance of the concluded results. The last section offers discussion about the use of robotic exoskeletons in clinics and future use of robotic assisted therapy.
