Brian Chau, Bradley Chi, Thaddeus Wilson
PURPOSE: Recurrent botulinum toxin (BoNT) injections are used in the pediatric population for management of spasticity, but the procedure is often associated with significant pain and anxiety for patients. Non-pharmacologic treatment alternatives for procedural discomfort are limited. Immersive virtual reality (VR) has shown efficacy in treatment of procedural discomfort in pediatric patients. A retrospective chart review was performed to assess feasibility and use of treating BoNT procedure-related discomfort in pediatric patients with VR...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of biofeedback therapy as a non-invasive intervention to treat Bladder Bowel Dysfunction in pediatrics. METHODS: Six databases were searched between February 2016 and September 2016. Biofeedback studies for children aged 4-16 with idiopathic urinary or fecal incontinence were included. Articles were excluded on subjects' medical histories, study design, timeline of study, and lacking expert review. Quality was determined using Sackett's Levels of Evidence and the PEDro scale...

PURPOSE: To modify the Performance-Oriented Mobility Assessment-Gait (POMA-G) subtest and validate this modified POMA-G (mPOMA-G) in children with hypophosphatasia (HPP), a rare metabolic disorder that can manifest with musculoskeletal symptoms that impair mobility and ambulation. METHODS: Based on feedback from an expert panel, the POMA-G was modified by removing gait initiation/path assessments and expanding the rating scale for step length/continuity to capture aspects of observational gait analysis relevant to children with HPP...

PURPOSE: To evaluate variables that modulate pain during intramuscular botulinum toxin A injections in children. METHODS: As part of a Quality Improvement project, this retrospective analysis compared reported pain during and five minutes post injections with patient and procedural variables using subgroup and regression analyses (N= 593 procedures with 249 unique patients). RESULTS: Mean procedural pain for all procedures (n= 563) was 3.8 ± 3...

PURPOSE: Development of an easy to use tool for the assessment of Developmental Coordination Disorder that is applicable to Indian children. METHODS: The steps for instrument development were followed stringently. In order to ensure the robustness of the tool, psychometric properties were determined with 127 children attending various schools. The Winsteps program was used to analyze data for a Rasch model analysis. RESULTS: The Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin Measure of Sampling Adequacy (KMO) analysis showed an acceptable limit...

BACKGROUND: There are several gaps in the literature related to the prognosis and care of children who have experienced a brain injury then develop paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity (PSH). OBJECTIVE: The objective of the present study was to explore the characteristics and prognosis of children who have experienced severe brain injury and developed PSH. METHODOLOGY: A secondary analysis was conducted using an established clinical dataset of children who had experienced severe brain injury and were admitted to an academic children's rehabilitation center (n= 83)...

PURPOSE: The aim of this systematic review was to analyze the results of studies on quantifiable physical risk factors (beyond questionnaires) for adolescent low back pain (LBP). METHODS: A systematic search was conducted in Medline (OvidSP), Premedline (PubMed), EMBASE, Cochrane, CINAHL, PEDro and PsycINFO. Cross-sectional, prospective and retrospective English language studies on LBP in adolescents aged 10 to 18 years were included. RESULTS: Twenty-two mostly cross-sectional studies were included...

PURPOSE: To assess the interrater reliability, construct validity and usability of the Eating and Drinking Ability Classification System (EDACS) among Dutch children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) when used by speech and language therapists (SLTs) familiar and unfamiliar with the child's eating and drinking performance and parents. METHODS: Translation was undertaken using the method of Eremenco. Agreement between SLTs and parents when using EDACS was determined by intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and linear weighted Kappa (κW)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to understand healthcare providers' perspective and responsivity to families' needs in rehabilitative care delivery for children with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). METHODS: Three focus group sessions were conducted to explore and understand multidisciplinary healthcare professionals' (Hcps) perspectives about the care they deliver to parents of children with ABI. Convenience sampling was used to recruit healthcare providers (total sample size = 15) from a large rehabiliation centre of an urban setting in western Canada...

PURPOSE: Psychometric data are reported for a new Global Family Quality of Life Scale (G-FQOLS) (3-items) evaluating family members, parents and adolescent/young adults (AYA). METHODS: Families (N= 209) were interviewed in a study addressing secondary conditions and adaptation in families of AYA with and without spina bifida (SB). Principal component factor analysis with Varimax rotation, Cronbach alpha, and Intraclass correlation (ICC) for parent-AYA agreement of FQOL assessment were conducted...

PURPOSE: The present study investigated the effects of virtual reality (VR) training using the Xbox Kinect on motor function, balance, gait, and functional mobility in children with cerebral palsy (CP). METHOD: This was a case series. Four children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy were provided VR training using the Xbox Kinect for 12 sessions (three sessions per week for 4 weeks). At baseline and follow-up, physical function was measured using the following: Selective Motor Control (SMC) for motor function, Pediatric Balance Scale (PBS) for balance, Timed Up and Go (TUG) test and Functional Mobility Scale (FMS) for functional mobility, and 6-meter walk test (6WT) for gait...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate evidence supporting physical and occupational therapy interventions used to improve sensory and motor outcomes for children 0-6 years with central hypotonia. METHODS: Four electronic databases were searched from 1996 to March 2017. Level of evidence and study conduct was evaluated using American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine criteria. Traffic lighting classification identified interventions that were green (proven effective), yellow (possibly effective) or red (proven ineffective or contraindicated)...

A 12 year-old female presented to the emergency department with a right hemiparesis, headache, and neck pain. Initial neural imaging studies were unremarkable. However, a repeat MRI of the cervical spine during her acute hospitalization showed an acute spinal infarct. Neurological workup was consistent with fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE) as the etiology. After several weeks of intensive inpatient rehabilitation, the patient demonstrated remarkable functional progress. This case report reviews the comprehensive pediatric literature on FCE with focus on the mechanism of injury, role of imaging studies, treatment options and prognosis...

Pediatric Rehabilitation therapists have always worked using a variety of off-the-shelf or custom-made objects and devices, more recently including computer based systems. These Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions vary widely in complexity, from easy-to-use interactive videogame consoles originally intended for entertainment purposes to sophisticated systems specifically developed for rehabilitation.This paper describes the principles underlying an innovative "Pediatric Rehabilitation 2...
