NCT ID: NCT05429281 Completed - Cerebral Palsy Clinical Trials

The Role of Pilates, Plyometrics, and Their Combination for Children With Unilateral Cerebral Palsy

Start date: February 7, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study was conducted to compare the effect of Pilates-based core strengthening (PsCS) and plyometric-based muscle loading (PlyoML) and their combination on postural control, balance, and mobility in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (ULCP). Eighty-one children with ULCP were randomly allocated to the PsCS (n = 27), PlyoML (n = 27), or combined intervention (n = 27) group. Participants in the three groups were assessed for postural control, balance, and mobility on the pre and post-treatment occasions.

NCT ID: NCT05428865 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Diplegic Cerebral Palsy

Correlation Between Body Mass Index, Selective Motor Control and Functional Ability in Children With CP

Start date: January 24, 2022
Phase:
Study type: Observational

PURPOSE: To investigate the correlations between body mass index, spasticity, functional ability and isolated motor control in children with spastic diplegia. BACKGROUND: Cerebral palsy is primarily a disorder of movement and posture HYPOTHESES: There is no correlation between body mass index, spasticity, functional ability and isolated motor control in children with spastic diplegia. RESEARCH QUESTION: Is there a correlation between body mass index, spasticity, functional ability and isolated motor control in children with spastic diplegia?

NCT ID: NCT05423171 Recruiting - Cerebral Palsy Clinical Trials

Intensive Bimanual Intervention in Cerebral Palsy Children

Start date: June 30, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Motor disorders related to cerebral palsy are often accompanied by sensory, cognitive, perceptive, communication and behavioural impairments. It has already been shown that intensive bimanual intervention can improve arm movement, but its impact on the spontaneous use of the most affected arm in everyday life remains to be established. This project aims to understand the impacts of an intensive bimanual therapy on uni- and bi-manual motor functions as well as the spontaneous use of the most affected arm. Predictive value of neuroimaging variables will also be assessed.

NCT ID: NCT05420363 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Diplegic Cerebral Palsy

Influence of Surface Characteristics of Gait Training on Gait Kinematics and Walking Capacity in Children With Diplegic CP

Start date: July 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Using challenging surfaces of gait training, which require constant adjustments of the body's movement patterns to maintain stability and provide different sensory and proprioceptive inputs to mimic real life situation is appropriate for children with CP. So, the purpose of the current study is to investigate the influence of surface characteristics of gait training on gait kinematics and walking capacity in children with diplegic CP.

NCT ID: NCT05418192 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Spastic Cerebral Palsy

Effects of Dosing and Environment on Gross Motor and Spasticity in Spastic Quadriplegic

Start date: January 3, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study focuses on how enriched environment along with the traditional physical therapy improves the gross motor function in spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy children. And how much dosing is required to gain that clinically significant improvement.

NCT ID: NCT05417399 Not yet recruiting - Cerebral Palsy Clinical Trials

Influence of Hawthorne Effect and Dual-tasks on Gait in CP

Start date: July 1, 2022
Phase:
Study type: Observational

It is the clinical experience of the authors that some children with cerebral palsy who walk in crouch gait show sufficient knee extension during the clinical gait analysis, but walk in considerable knee flexion when they leave the gait laboratory. Possible differences between walking in a gait lab and walking in daily life may be caused by the effect of observational awareness in the lab (also known as the Hawthorne effect), and the lack of dual-tasks (DT) during the analysis (which are common during daily life walking). Since so far there is no technique to reliably measure gait kinematics in children with CP outside of the laboratory, the researchers aim to objectify the influence of both the Hawthorne effect and dual-tasks by introducing different conditions during a standard clinical 3D gait analysis.

NCT ID: NCT05412485 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia

Gait Improvement After Increased Frequency of Robot-assisted Gait Training in Cerebral Palsy Children

Start date: June 7, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Robot-assisted gait training (RAGT) can provide a longer training duration with a higher repetition of stepping while maintaining a stable pattern of movement. However, the existing evidence of its effectiveness is not clear. The aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility and the effect of increased frequency (4 times per week) of RAGT compared to the most common frequency (2 times per week). we hypothesize that increased frequency of RAGT will result in greater improvements on the gait functions. This research will investigate the effect of increased frequency on robotic assisted gait training (RAGT) in a frequency of 4 times per a week, and will compare the effect of robotic assisted gait training (RAGT) with increased frequency and with usual frequency (2 times per a week) in regards with gait functional parameters such as balance, speed, endurance, and quality of gait among cerebral palsy (CP) children's.

NCT ID: NCT05411328 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Ataxic Cerebral Palsy

Efficacy of Virtual Reality on Balance in Children With Ataxic Cerebral Palsy Randomized Controlled Trail

Start date: May 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Ataxic CP is one type of cerebral palsy. children with ataxic cerebral palsy have trouble with balance and coordination. They may walk with their legs farther apart than other kids and have a hard time with activities that use small hand movements, like writing. Some also have trouble with depth perception This means being able to accurately judge how close or far away something is

NCT ID: NCT05409079 Recruiting - Cerebral Palsy Clinical Trials

Schulze Muscular Dystrophy Ability Clinical Study

Start date: May 26, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The primary objective of the Schulze study is to evaluate the function of the upper limbs of subjects diagnosed with neuromuscular disorders, with and without use of the Abilitech Assist device in the clinic and home environments. Functional outcomes will include documenting active range of motion and the ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) using the standardized Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) and the Role Evaluation of Activities of Life (REAL) assessments. Secondary objectives are to assess the safety record and report on adverse events (AEs) and parameters related to device usage, including device usage time and the time required to don/doff the device. Secondary objectives also include characterization of user upper limb performance based on etiology.

NCT ID: NCT05408806 Recruiting - Cerebral Palsy Clinical Trials

Technology Assisted Rehabilitation in CP

Start date: March 1, 2022
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The aim of the research is to increase the active participation of children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) in therapy by integrating technological approaches into rehabilitation; To examine the effects of Nintendo Wii virtual reality games or hippotherapy simulator use on postural control, activity and participation in addition to Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NGT), which is frequently used in rehabilitation programs in CP, and to contribute to the relevant literature. H1/H1-0: In the rehabilitation of children with Cerebral Palsy, Nintendo Wii virtual reality games in addition to NGT has or has no effect on postural control, lower extremity selective motor control, spasticity, activity and participation levels. H2/H2-0: In the rehabilitation of children with Cerebral Palsy, Hippotherapy simulator in addition to NGT has or has no effect on postural control, lower extremity selective motor control, spasticity, activity and participation levels.
