PURPOSE: To assess a motivational interviewing (MI) intervention to improve moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) in adolescents with congenital heart disease. METHODS: Intervention participants received one-on-one telephone-based adapted MI sessions over 3 months. Outcomes were acceptability, change mechanisms (stage of change and self-efficacy), and limited efficacy (physical activity, fitness, and quality of life). RESULTS: Thirty-six participants were randomized...

PURPOSE: A platform requiring multidimensional trunk movement facilitated postural balance in children with cerebral palsy. METHODS: The intervention group (n = 20) received 12 weeks of playing personal computer (PC) games using the platform, and the control group (n = 20) played the same games using a computer mouse. Outcomes were center-of-pressure sway, the Berg Balance Scale (BBS), Fullerton Advanced Balance Scale (FAB), and Timed Up and Go (TUG) test scores...

PURPOSE: Children with brain tumors (BTs) experience fatigue and decreased quality of life (QOL). Physical activity (PA) is recommended during and after cancer treatment. We explored whether a fitness tracker intervention combined with tailored coaching by a physical therapist (PT) increased PA and QOL and decreased fatigue in children with BTs. METHODS: Participants were 7 to 18 years' old, within 2 years of diagnosis, and received a 12-week PA intervention using a fitness tracker combined with 5 PT coaching sessions...

PURPOSE: To determine effects of transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) on motor function for children with cerebral palsy. METHODS: Six electronic databases were searched using terms related to tDCS, combined with functional deficits/associated clinical measures. Results were filtered, including randomized controlled trials in English and children with cerebral palsy. Data were extracted using standardized procedures, and the PEDro scale was used to assess quality and meta-analyses conducted...

PURPOSE: To examine the feasibility of a new open-area body weight support system (BWSS) to act as both an "assistive" and a "rehabilitative" device within the home. INTERVENTION: A 5-year-old boy with spina bifida used the BWSS during self-selected activities for 10 weeks. Feasibility, behavioral, and clinical assessments provided a quantification of his activity in and out of the BWSS. OUTCOMES: On average, the child used the device on 2...

AIM: To investigate suit-orthosis effects on postural sway during anticipatory and compensatory postural adjustments (APA and CPA, respectively) in a seated reaching task performed by children with cerebral palsy (CP). METHODS: Twenty-nine children were divided according to Manual Ability Classification System (MACS) I and II-III. Participants were instructed to reach forward toward an object both in a no-suit condition and in a suit-orthosis condition. RESULTS: Using the suit-orthosis, children at MACS II-III decreased velocity of center-of-pressure (CoP) sway during APA, whereas children at MACS I increased the anterior-posterior CoP displacement during CPA...

PURPOSE: To monitor changes in time spent on pediatric physical therapy actions during a COPing With and CAring for Infants With Special Needs (COPCA) course. METHODS: Data were collected before (T0), during, and after (T3) the course, which was attended by 15 Swiss physical therapists. Four treatment sessions of each therapist were video recorded and analyzed with the Groningen Observation Protocol 2.0, allowing for quantification of relative duration of therapeutic actions...

PURPOSE: The study purpose was to determine the minimum number of monitoring days necessary to reliably capture walking among individuals with lower limb salvage. METHODS: Nineteen participants with lower limb salvage wore an ankle-mounted motion sensor over a 7-day period to obtain step counts. Generalizability theory was used to examine the variance components in step counts (G study) and to determine the appropriate length of activity monitoring using various combinations of days (D study)...

PURPOSE: To quantitatively describe passive lower extremity range of motion in participants with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) types 2 and 3, and to establish preliminary thresholds to identify individuals at risk for performing poorly on disease-specific motor function outcome measures. METHODS: Eighty participants with SMA types 2 and 3, enrolled in an international multicenter natural history study, were evaluated with lower extremity range of motion testing and the Hammersmith Functional Motor Scale-Expanded...

PURPOSE: This study examined the relationship between the Gait Deviation Index (GDI) and walking activity preoperatively and postoperatively. METHODS: The GDI and walking activity from 74 youth with cerebral palsy (CP) were included in the analysis. The preoperative GDI was calculated using gait parameters collected during a clinical gait analysis 1 to 16 months prior to surgery. The postoperative GDI was calculated using gait parameters collected during a clinical gait analysis 10 to 26 months following surgery...

PURPOSE: The aim was to explore the timing and duration of muscle activation during a landing task in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and compare their responses to those of children who are developing typically (TD). METHODS: Six children (ages 3-4.5 years), half with ASD, hung from a vertical bar, landed, and reacted to a light cue that signaled the child to run to the right or left or to stay in place. Electromyography and kinematics were recorded and compared between groups...
