Fatigue is a common symptom associated with cerebral palsy (CP); it has been estimated that up to 40% of adolescents with CP experience fatigue that impacts their quality of life and daily activities. Although fatigue was stated as the primary symptom, a limited number of studies were found on secondary motor and nonmotor symptoms related to trunk control in children when the literature was examined.
The aim of the study; To investigate the effects of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilizations and Stretching Exercises on flexibility, spasticity, balance and functional mobility in patients with CP.
The purposes of the current study are to: 1. Investigate the effect of arm ergometer on trunk control, hand grip strength and upper extremity functions in children with spastic diplegia. 2. Investigate the effect of stabilization exercise on trunk control, hand grip strength and upper extremity functions in children with spastic diplegia. 3. To compare between the effects of arm ergometer versus stabilization exercises on trunk control, hand grip strength and upper extremity function in children with diplegia.
Foot deformities are one of the most common orthopedic problems in patients with cerebral palsy(CP). Various methods have been proposed to evaluate foot morphology. Arch height index (AHI) measurement is a simple and quantitative method that can be applied in outpatient settings to evaluate the morphology of the medial longitudinal arch(MLA) of the foot. In this study, we aim to investigate the feasibility of AHI measurement in children with CP and, to identify other clinical findings that may be related to foot arch height determined by the AHI method.
Upper extremity therapies for children with cerebral palsy (CP) have been validated for improving function in higher functioning patients. Those who function at the lowest end of the scale, on the Manual Ability Classification System scale (MACS) III-V, comprise 34-54% of the population, but as yet have no evidence-based interventions specific to their needs. Lower functioning children often retain some voluntary control of the elbow in spite of limited finger motion. A dynamic splint, or exoskeleton, could utilize the tenodesis effect from elbow motion to drive finger release while retaining flexor tone for grasp, potentially creating a portable, home-based therapeutic tool. The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of an upper extremity orthotic device in improving the upper extremity function of children with cerebral palsy who have limited use of their hands.
The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between screen usage time and problematic social media use in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) with motor function, hand function, speech and vision function.
To compare the effect of functional electrical stimulation (FES) versus TheraTogs on Gait and Balance in children with hemiplegic CP.
A Retrospective study In Children who have switched to Isosource Junior Mix formula (RICIMIX study) will review paediatric children > 12 months of age who require Isosource Junior Mix as an enteral tube feeding formula and have consumed the formula for at least 1 month. The purpose of this study is to understand If there has been an improvement in outcomes/ experiences - The current usage of ISJMIX formula in children who require blended diets - Improved feeding intolerances - Improved patient outcomes/ experiences
