Table 3 Classification of spasticity applied to the obtained data in this study.

From: The relationship between spasticity in young children (18 months of age) with cerebral palsy and their gross motor function development

Level of spasticity Score Cut-off points for the angle of spasticity (R1) in our group (in degrees per muscle group) Range
ADDUCTORS   Abduction  
No spasticity 0 61.>  
Probable spasticity 1 60-51 1 SD (Right:10.0 Left:10.1)
Definite spasticity 2 ≤ 50  
HAMSTRINGS   Popliteal angle  
No spasticity 0 0-20  
Probable spasticity 1 21-40 1 SD (Right: 17.7, Left: 18.0)
Definite spasticity 2 ≥ 41  
GASTROCNEMIUS   Ankle-foot position  
No spasticity 0 11 - 50 dorsiflexion  
Probable spasticity 1 10 dorsiflexion - (-5)plantarflexion 1 SD (Right 13.4, Left: 13.0)
Definite spasticity 2 ≤ (-5) plantarflexion
