Turkish Validity and Reliability of the Sitting Assessment Scale in Cerebral Palsy

Summary: The Sitting Assessment Scale is a valid and reliable scale that evaluates sitting balance in Cerebral Palsy (CP). The validity and reliability study of the scale has been done, but it has not been adapted to Turkish language. The aim of this study is to adapt the Sitting Evaluation Scale, which evaluates sitting balance in Cerebral Palsy, into Turkish and to examine the validity and reliability of...

Improving Bone Health in Wheelchair Users by a Long-term Intervention Combining Bone-specific Exercise and Nutrition

Summary: The low mechanical loading of bones among wheelchair users leads to an increased risk of bone fractures and associated complications due to low bone mineral density (BMD). Adding mechanical loading through physical activity in combination with optimizing nutrition may counteract these negative consequences in wheelchair users and thereby provide positive impact for bone health, as well as for phys...

Postural Management to Prevent Hip Luxation in Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy Children: Comparing Two Approaches in a Randomized Controlled Trial

Summary: Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common motor disability in childhood. Among these, hip luxation represents the most frequent and clinically relevant one, affecting 72% of non-ambulatory CP children. Reconstructive surgical treatment is debated in severe CP children, for whom it is crucial to identify an effective preventive approach. The aim of our study is to verify if keeping a sitting position ...

Evaluating an Extension Assist Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis to Improve Gait in Children With Movement Disorders

Background: - Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common motor disorder in children. CP often causes crouch gait, an abnormal way of walking. Knee crouch has many causes, so no single device or approach works best for everybody. This study s adjustable brace provides many types of walking assistance. Researchers will evaluate brace options to find the best solution for each participant, and whether one solution w...

Relationship Between Isometric Muscle Strength and Gross Motor Function in Children With Unilateral Cerebral Palsy

Summary: Muscle strength can be defined as the ability of skeletal muscle to develop force for the purpose of providing stability and mobility within the musculoskeletal system, so that functional movement can take place.

Effectiveness of Positive Psychotherapy on Mental Wellbeing, Sense of Coherence, Social Support and Difficulties Among Caregivers of Cerebral Palsy Children

Summary: The Central idea of the proposed research proposal is first to translate adapt and validate the Caregiver Difficulties Scale & Positive Psychotherapy sessions based manual into Urdu language then secondly, assessment of burnout, burden, depression, mental wellbeing, sense of coherence and social support among caregivers of Cerebral palsy children and finally measuring the effectiveness of Positive...

Effects of Lower Extremity Functional Training (LIFT) on Gross Motor Function and Gait in Children With Spastic Cerebral Palsy

Summary: Cerebral Palsy is a developmental disorder caused by damage to the brain before, during or after birth. Spastic Cerebral Palsy is one of the most common types of cerebral Palsy. It affects about 80% of cerebral palsy. Spastic CP is characterized by increased muscle tone, jerky movements, joint stiffness, and muscle tightness. Spastic Cerebral primarily affects strength, coordination, and balance r...

Evaluation of the Correlation Between the 2 Pupillometry Indexes (QPI and NPI) in Cerebral Palsy Patients

Summary: Pupillary examination, and in particular pupillary reactivity to light, is fundamental to the monitoring and follow-up in intensive care units of patients with acute brain injury. A pupillometric index combining different parameters of pupillary light reflex has been described as predictive of intracranial hypertension and the neurological outcome of the patient.

Effect of Scooter Board Activities on Trunk Postural Control and Gait in Children With Diplegic Cerebral Palsy

Summary: Children with CP may have muscle weakness, changes in mobility, posture, muscle tone, motor coordination and deficits in postural control. These changes, individually or collectively, affect psychomotor function. As a result, activities that are performed quickly and readily by healthy children may be difficult and time-consuming for children with CP.

Near-infrared Spectroscopy and Electroencephalography to Assess and Train Cortical Activation During Motor Tasks

Background: - Two ways to study the brain while people are moving are near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and electroencephalography (EEG). NIRS uses light to look at blood flow in the brain when it is active. EEG records electrical activity in the brain. Both have been used safely for many years, even in very young children. NIRS or EEG can be used while a person is moving to show which parts of the brain are ...

The Effect of Hippotherapy Simulator on Sitting Balance, Trunk Control and Upper Extremity Skills in Cerebral Palsy

Summary: Hippotherapy simulators imitate the passive movements of the horse, producing simple movements similar to those of the horse. Hippotherapy simulators are intended to improve sitting balance, postural control and trunk balance. The aim of this study was to research the therapeutic effects of hippotherapy simulator on sitting balance, trunk control and upper extremity skills in individuals with Cere...

Protocol of a Two-group Open-label Randomized Clinical Trial With Blinded Assessment for Prevention of Contractures in Infants With High Risk of Cerebral Palsy.

Summary: Contractures are a frequent cause of reduced mobility in children with Cerebral palsy (CP) already at the age of 2-3 years. Reduced muscle use and muscle growth have been suggested as key factors in the development of contractures, suggesting that efficient early prevention will have to involve stimuli that can facilitate muscle growth already before the age of 1 year. The present study protocol w...
