- Scientific TitleThe influence of Continuous Passive Motion after knee surgery in cerbral palsy.
- hypothesisContinuous Passive Motion in the early post-operative periode after knee surgery is beneficiary for the rehabilation process in children with cerebral palsy.

- Target number of participants100
- InterventionsTroughout the whole study, all children receive their normal, classical physiotherapy programm. The intervention contains daily sessions of continuous passive motion (one hour) (either in the week 2-4 or in week 5-7 after surgery, depending on the group they are attributed to).
- Primary outcomeThe primary outcome is knee flexion range of motion (ROM) as measured with goniometry. Knee ROM willl be measured when the children go home after surgery. The measurement will be repeated when they come back for rehabilitation at week 4. From that point on ROM will be measured weekly.
- Secondary outcomePain will be noted at the same moments as the primary outcome (based on pain medication the child is administered), selectivity will be noted at the same moments as the primary outcome.
- Timepoints1. Before inclusion;
2. After 3 weeks CPM/physiotherapy;
3. After 6 weeks physiotherapy/CPM.

- Brief summaryOrthopedic surgery is often needed to correct the excessive knee flexion pattern during gait in children with cerebral palsy. The first few weeks after orthopedic surgery, it is important that the knee joint is sufficiently mobilized to avoid movement restrictions and to accelerate the recovery process. These mobilizations can be performed actively by a physiotherapist or passively by a device for passive mobilization. The advantage of passive mobilization is that the patient can practice several times a day, including weekends. However, the effect of the passive mobilization on recovery has not yet been proved. In this cross-over study half of the children get daily passive mobilization (QAL Medical, OrthoAgility, 480E) besides the classical physiotherapy for 3 weeks after a multi-level knee surgery. The other half will receive only the classical physiotherapy. After 3 weeks the children exchange groups. The range of knee flexion is the primary outcome and will be measured at different timepoints.
