Experimental research was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of a dynamic soft orthotic system on the movement patterns of young children with cerebral palsy. Positive changes were noted on motor scores, and parents reported important changes such that they would continue to apply the intervention for use at home and in school after the study had concluded.
