Cerebral palsy (CP) belongs to the group of dysfunctions in which impairment of the gait function is a constant element. The goal in rehabilitation is to steer the process of compensation in such a way that the gait pattern produces a minimum of disturbances and limitations in locomotion. Objective evaluation is essential for purposes of planning rehabilitation and monitoring outcome. Since the evaluation of gait can be parameterized, the authors have presenting methods for making such an evaluation, concentrating on two types of tests. The possibility of evaluating gate symmetry is presented, based on the use of the Parotec® system, along with evaluation based on analysis of particular gate markers, using the Zebris system. Certain practical remarks are given in the conclusion, essential for planning and managing the course of rehabilitation for children with cerebral palsy.
