PURPOSE: This study investigated whether targeted training was feasible with young children younger than 2 years with poor trunk control due to cerebral palsy or developmental delay without using specialized equipment and the overall change in trunk control and functional ability, with the addition of targeted training to standard care physical therapy. SUMMARY OF KEY POINTS: Four children younger than 24 months with motor disorders were recruited. No difficulty was identified in using targeted training with this group...

PURPOSE: To describe the use and effectiveness of a novel intensive progressive resistance exercise (PRE) approach to address the functional goals of a 14-year-old adolescent with a myelomeningocele. SUMMARY OF KEY POINTS: The child had lower extremity weakness, knee and hip flexion contractures, impaired somatosensation, and cardiopulmonary deconditioning, affecting gait mechanics and functional ambulation. An 8-week intensive PRE-based intervention was designed to improve walking in the home by targeting both power-generating and stabilizing lower extremity musculature...

PURPOSE: Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common motor disability of childhood. Less is known about its prevalence and associated factors in Switzerland, so we aimed to fill this knowledge gap in one Swiss canton, evaluating the feasibility to build up a CP registry. METHODS: A retrospective review of medical records was undertaken. Children born during 1995 and 2009 in the canton of Saint Gallen diagnosed with CP were eligible for inclusion. RESULTS: A total of 140 patients formed the study cohort...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this report was to describe a pediatric service-learning program in entry-level physical therapy (PT) education in Taiwan. KEY POINTS: To meet the needs of the local community and provide preclinical service-learning experience to PT students with people with physical disability, a service-learning program of a 2-day camp for children with cerebral palsy (CP) was developed in 2012. To date, 356 entry-level PT students have participated in this program, serving 286 children and their families...

PURPOSE: To determine the feasibility of Headpod use to improve head control in children with cerebral palsy classified as Gross Motor Function Classification System level V. METHODS: Children (3-11 years) with poor head control were video recorded before and after 3 and 6 months of Headpod use. Head control without Headpod was measured by active time children could hold head upright and number of head bobs in 5 minutes. RESULTS: Fourteen children enrolled with 43% attrition rate...

PURPOSE: To describe the effect of fatigue and self-management practices for adolescents and young adults with cerebral palsy. METHODS: A survey of 124 people with cerebral palsy with the Fatigue Impact and Severity Self-Assessment. RESULTS: Participants in Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) level I experienced little effect of fatigue, with high proportions of this group disagreeing to statements about fatigue impacting their general activities, mobility, and social activities...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine effectiveness of a midliner positioning system (MPS, Tortle Midliner) for preventing dolichocephaly. METHODS: This was a nonrandomized, prospective study of 30 premature infants (study cohort, SC) using an MPS compared with a retrospective study cohort (RSC) of 65 infants who received standard of care intervention. RESULTS: RSC baseline cranial index (CI) of 80% and final CI of 77% significantly decreased over an average 5...

PURPOSE: To explore the role of pediatric physical therapists (PPT) in promoting sports participation in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) and identify associated barriers and facilitators. METHODS: Questionnaires were provided to 243 PPTs. Qualitative, semistructured, in-depth interviews were administered with the PPTs, children with DCD, and parents. RESULTS: Approximately 67% of questionnaires were returned. Approximately 46% of PPTs were active in guiding children with DCD to sports clubs...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the gross motor development of 5-year-olds using the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales, 2nd Edition (PDMS-2), test after initial nonoperative management of clubfoot as infants. METHODS: The PDMS-2 Stationary, Locomotion, and Object Manipulation subtests were assessed on 128 children with idiopathic clubfeet at the age of 5 years. Children were categorized by their initial clubfoot severity as greater than 13, unilateral or bilateral involvement, and required surgery...

PURPOSE: To determine the changes in the prefrontal cortical (PFC) activation following hand-arm bimanual intensive therapy (HABIT) in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP). METHODS: Nine children with HCP and 15 children who were developing typically participated in the study. Children with HCP received 50 hours of HABIT. We assessed pre- and post-HABIT PFC activation using functional near-infrared spectroscopy neuroimaging. Bimanual coordination and motor task performance were assessed using the Assisting Hand Assessment (AHA), the average number of shapes matched, the shape matching errors, the reaction time, the 9-hole peg test, and the box and blocks test...
