  1. Participant characteristics were included from all children who completed the protocol. GMFCS gross motor function classification system, [34] GM gastrocnemius medialis muscle, SO soleus muscle, scores reflect values of spasticity according to the SPAT test, [13] Cl clonus, no SPAT can be quantified for these participants, CWS comfortable walking speed on the treadmill, TD typically developing, CP cerebral palsy, SDR selective dorsal rhizotomy, children who had SDR surgery were excluded from analyses of neurophysiological criteria
