Twister Cables

Posted By: AIMEE KEITH SMITH on June 11, 2009

Wondering what the latest thought on twister cables is in relation to preventing internal rotation of the legs in patients with Cerebral Palsy.  I haven't used any in a while and was wondering first thoughts on this and second if their are any studies that show the pros and cons of them.  Second, are there other options that are being implemented for the prevention of this rotation?  Keith M.
