Clinical Trial Summary

In this study, video-based action observation training and live action observation training in children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy; It was aimed to examine the effect on motor function, activity participation and secondary outcome measures.


Clinical Trial Description

The study was designed as a single-blind randomized controlled trial. Patients aged 5-14 years with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy will be included. Children will be assigned to groups through stratified randomisation; The patients will be divided into 3 groups as experimental and control groups. Group 1 (experiment): video-based action observation training in addition to the conventional rehabilitation program, Group 2 (experiment): live action observation training in addition to the conventional rehabilitation program, Group 3 (control) will receive only the conventional rehabilitation program. The experimental group will receive 20 minutes of action observation training after a conventional physiotherapy program for 20 minutes for 8 weeks, 40 minutes 2 days a week. The control group will receive 40 minutes of conventional treatment. Evaluations will be made for each group, before and 8 weeks after the start of the study. GMFM for gross motor function; Pediatric berg balance scale for balance function; Timed Up and Go Test for functional mobility assessment; Gillette Functional Assessment Questionnaire and 1-min walk test to assess functional walking; sit and stand test for functional muscle strength and to evaluate activity participation; The Child and Adolescent Participation Questionnaire (CASP) will be used. ;
