- Public TitleFunctional power training in young children with cerebral palsy
- Scientific TitleEffectiveness of functional power training in young children with cerebral palsy on walking ability.
- ACRONYMMegaPower training
- hypothesisWalking ability and plantar flexor strength of young children with CP improve more after functional power training compared to usual care.
- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedWalking competency, Spasticity, Force control
- Inclusion criteria-Ambulant children (GMFCS I and II) with a predominantly spastic cerebral palsy
- aged 4 - 10 years,
