Classification RR1 – severe involvement of LL (legs) and trunk, (significant spasticity) gross patterns of movement only, difficulty in isolating individual joint movements, ineffective leg propulsion, foot drag, severe asymmetry, poor co-ordination, poor trunk control and upper limb involvement, limited hand function requiring hand placement aids, startle reflex.
Classification RR2 – moderate involvement of LL (legs) and trunk (less spasticity), asymmetry but more effective pushing pattern than RR1, may also need gloves to keep hands on handlebars, min or no foot drag, poor co-ordination but can alternate leg movement but limited stride effectiveness, moderate trunk control.
Classification RR3 – mild to moderate involvement of one or both UL, fair to good trunk control, moderate involvement of LL (legs), symmetrical or slight asymmetrical movement of LL (legs), with alternate leg movement and good push off, no startle reflex ie effective start, good acceleration with adequate steering and braking, will not require hand strapping, reduced range of movement at hip and knee joints may limit stride length. Some athletes with Athetosis may demonstrate a smoother movement as their speed increases.
