Golfers with disability are limited in the execution of the full golf swing, but their performance in putting may be comparable because this stroke does not demand significant strength, balance and range of motion. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare putting performance, kinetic and kinematic consistency between golfers with different disabilities and healthy athletes. The participants consisted of three disabled athletes (perinatal cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, below knee lower limb amputee) and three healthy golfers (age 34 ± 4...

BACKGROUND: We describe a case of severe and progressive lumbar hyperlordosis (160°) in a 28-year-old female university student with cerebral palsy. Her main complaints were abdominal wall pain and increasing inability to sit in her custom wheelchair. METHOD: When deciding on our opinion about the most promising treatment strategy, we contemplated slow continued correction by means of percutaneously expandable magnetic rods (MAGEC) after the index surgery as a key component of a satisfactory correction in this severe and rigid curve...

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common childhood motor disability and often results in debilitating walking abnormalities, such as flexed-knee and stiff-knee gait. Current medical and surgical treatments are only partially effective in improving gait abnormalities and may cause significant muscle weakness. However, emerging artificial walking technologies, such as step-initiated, multichannel neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), can substantially improve gait patterns and promote muscle strength in children with spastic CP...

BACKGROUND: Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a well-known intervention used during walking to improve walking abilities and correct gait deviations by facilitating the proper muscle group at the appropriate timing in the gait cycle. Our aim was to study the types of surface FES currently used in a cerebral palsy (CP) population and examine the evidence of its ability to improve gait deviations, functional ability and therapeutic effects. METHODS: A computerized database search was conducted from inception until 6/2016...

PURPOSE: Neuromuscular (NM) hip dysplasia is common in patients with cerebral palsy (CP). Traditionally, migration percentage (MP) has been used to measure the severity of NM hip dysplasia; however, the MP has some limitations. The purpose of this study is to determine the intra- and inter-reliability of the Melbourne Cerebral Palsy Hip Classification System in the typical paediatric population of patients with CP. METHODS: A total of 65 anteroposterior pelvis radiographs in patients (age range 12 years to 21 years) with CP spanning all grades (I to VI) of the classification system were identified and collected for analysis in this institutional review board approved study...

The clinical care of children with physical disabilities is a major priority for paediatricians and paediatric orthopaedic surgeons. Cerebral palsy (CP) is the prototypical condition and remains the most common cause of physical disability in developed countries. The incidence is approximately 2 per 1000 live births, translating to between 600 and 700 new children per annum in Australia, with approximately 34 000 children and adults currently living with CP. This figure is predicted to rise inexorably over the next 20 years...

Individuals with cerebral palsy often exhibit crouch gait, a debilitating and inefficient walking pattern marked by excessive knee flexion that worsens with age. To address the need for improved treatment, we sought to evaluate if providing external knee extension assistance could reduce the excessive burden placed on the knee extensor muscles as measured by knee moments. We evaluated a novel pediatric exoskeleton designed to provide appropriately-timed extensor torque to the knee joint during walking in a multi-week exploratory clinical study...

A distal femoral extension osteotomy with patellar tendon advancement (DFEO+PTA) is a common treatment for individuals with cerebral palsy (CP) who walk in crouch. Musculoskeletal modeling suggests that the typical patella baja position post-DFEO+PTA may limit one's abilities to perform sit-to-stand (STS) tasks; however, STS function has not been assessed. Our purpose was to compare how well individuals who received a DFEO+PTA can perform a 5-times STS test (FTSST) eight or more years after surgery compared to their peers who did not receive a DFEO+PTA (non-DFEO+PTA group)...

Hip dislocation is a common source of disability in cerebral palsy children. It has been remedied by various reconstructive procedures. This review aims at providing the best evidence for bony reconstructive procedures in cerebral palsy hip migration. The literature extraction process yielded 36 articles for inclusion in this review. There is fair evidence to indicate that the comparative effectiveness of femoral versus combined pelvifemoral reconstruction favours pelvifemoral reconstruction. All except one were retrospective articles with a significant degree of selection and performance bias and confounding variables that limited the validity and generalizability of the conclusions...
