• Functional Task Training Combined With Electrical Stimulation Improves Motor Capacity in Children With Unilateral Cerebral Palsy: A Single-Subject Design

    4 monthes ago - By Pediatric Physical Therapy

    Purpose:
    Reduced propulsive capability can impact negatively on mobility activities of many children with spastic unilateral cerebral palsy. This study investigated the effect of a task-oriented training program combined with functional electrical stimulation on the motor capacity of children with SUCP.
    Methods:
    Single-case A-B design with follow-up. Gross motor function and biomechanical walking data of 4 children with SUCP were measured repeatedly across the baseline, intervention, and follow-up phases. Intervention was a task-oriented training program combined with FES applied on the...
