  1. *T1k will be repeated for each FRO-configuration: rigid, stiff and flexible.
  2. ** The physical examination includes passive Range of Motion, selective motor control and gross motor function tests.
  3. ***SAM and CAPE data will be assessed in the week prior to the ticked measurement moment.
