The results of this study will have an impact upon public heath policy as adults with
cerebral palsy (CP) present a growing and underserved population in the United States. At the
conclusion of this study, we will have identified the means by which the adult with CP
maintains their upright position, which is essential for activities of daily living and for
movement. With this knowledge, it will be possible to develop clinical and rehabilitation
interventions that will improve their arm and leg function, and reduce the risk of falls for
the adult with CP.
