The implementation of computer games in physical therapy is motivated by characteristics such as attractiveness, motivation, and engagement, but these do not guarantee the intended therapeutic effect of the interventions. Yet, these characteristics are important variables in physical therapy interventions because they involve reward-related dopaminergic systems in the brain that are known to facilitate learning through long-term potentiation of neural connections. In this perspective we propose a way to apply game design approaches to therapy development by "designing" therapy sessions in such a way as to trigger physical and cognitive behavioral patterns required for treatment and neurological recovery...

PURPOSE: The presence of hypertrophic scars, which cross lower extremity joints, can often result in decreased range of motion, limitations in functional mobility, and gait deviations. This article reviews a case and describes a multimodal treatment approach. SUMMARY OF KEY POINTS: A 6-year-old girl developed aggressive hypertrophic scars following a burn injury. A multimodal treatment approach, including splinting, elastomers, and physical therapy, was developed...

PURPOSE: To determine the intrarater and interrater reliability of the arch height index (AHI) in children developing typically. The AHI is tested with a device that measures foot structure. METHODS: Thirty children, ages 6 to 12 years, participated for a total of n = 60 feet. The AHI measurements were taken by 2 investigators in sitting and standing and repeated twice by each investigator in a single visit. Intrarater and interrater reliabilities were determined using intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) (2,1) statistical analysis...

PURPOSE: To determine test-retest reliability and minimal detectable change of the Timed Up and Go (TUG) and Timed Up and Down Stairs (TUDS) for Down syndrome. SUBJECTS: Twelve children with Down syndrome (DS) aged 3 to 17 years. METHODS: Two sessions, 1 week apart, with 3 trials of the TUG and 2 trials of the TUDS. Test-retest reliability was estimated using intraclass correlation coefficients and the standard error of measurement. The minimal detectable changes (MDCs) for both tests were calculated...

PURPOSE: This study compared differences in motor development in infants with Down syndrome beginning a tummy time intervention before 11 weeks of age and after 11 weeks of age. METHODS: Nineteen infants with Down syndrome participated in tummy time until they could independently transition in and out of sitting. Motor development was assessed monthly using the Bayley III Motor Scales and compared between the groups. RESULTS: A difference in motor development between early and late groups is apparent 1, 2, and 3 months following intervention initiation...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effectiveness of 8 weeks of weekly spinal stabilization exercises compared with 1-time treatment in participants with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and low back pain at a 6-month follow-up. METHODS: Thirty-two participants were evaluated at a 6-month follow-up. The supervised group received weekly spinal stabilization exercises. The unsupervised group received a 1-time treatment and home exercise program. RESULTS: Both groups improved in all outcome measures...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the feasibility of a 3-week constraint-induced movement therapy program in children with brain tumors and upper extremity hemiplegia and to describe resultant change in extremity use. METHODS: Affected arm use, health-related quality of life, and parent-reported feasibility of program participation were measured before and after the intervention and at a 3-month follow-up visit. RESULTS: All 9 participants completed the entire study...

PURPOSE: To examine differences in physical therapy dosing frequency recommendations based on children's characteristics and to describe types of intervention recommended at postacute hospital admission. METHODS: Demographic and clinical information, recommended physical therapy intervention frequency, and intervention types were collected for all admissions from April 1, 2015, to March 1, 2016. Differences across 2 groups, children with recommendations for "less" (≤3x/wk) or "more" (≥4x/wk) frequent therapy, were examined...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of combined exercise training on functional performance in participants with cerebral palsy. METHODS: Fifteen participants with spastic cerebral palsy were randomly allocated into either exercise or control groups. Participants in the exercise group participated in a combined strength and endurance training program for 70 minutes per day, 3 days per week, for 8 weeks, whereas those in the control group did not participate in an exercise program...
