Hi!

I am physiatrist in Korea and one of my main concern is treatment and
evaluation of spasticity.

For evaluation of spasticity, I have used pendulum test with motion
analysis system and this method showed good correlation with clinical
profiles.
My questions are
1) I hope to know how to modify the evaluation method for the patients
with soft tissue contracture with biomechanical tools.
2) Please let me know the method how to quantitatively ankle clonus
with biomechanical method or other biomechanical tools other than
pendulum
test or ankle clonus evaluation.
