Abstract in different language: In this paper we present a procedure to correct the gait disorder in a 4 year old girl with mild CP and spastic double monoplegia. Time series for movement of the patient were produced in the gait lab of Wigmore clinic in Yerevan (Armenia) and the orthoses were designed based on numerical computation to optimise the movement of the patients. Diagnosis: A comprehensive physical examination of the patient and observation of the gait were done by a team of paediatric orthopaedic surgeons, a paediatric rehabilitation physician, a rheumatologist, and a biomechanician. The cause of disorder in locomotion was diagnosed upper motor neuro disorder and CP. Distal movement of the patient is not possible and the treatment should be done by using orthosis device, by physiotherapy and stretching, (Fig. 1a), and by Tracking Gait Carpet (TGC) (Fig. 1b, 1c.)
