Table 2 Walking speed (12 cycles), joint velocity at push-off and active ankle range of motion (6 cycles, only affected/most affected side) at self-selected walking speed, presented as mean and standard deviation in parentheses

From: Ballistic strength training in adults with cerebral palsy may increase rate of force development in plantar flexors, but transition to walking remains unclear: a case series

  Speed (m/s) Angular velocity at push-off (°/s) Ankle RoM (°)
