Accessible Methodology to Quantitate General Movements Assessments in Infants at High Risk for Cerebral Palsy (2016)

The best diagnostic tool for CP in infants is difficult to use. Better diagnostic tools can diagnose earlier and easier, to intervene more effectively. This grant tests the ability

The Effect of Intravenous ɛ- Aminocarproic Acid on Blood Loss and Transfusion Requirements after Bilateral Varus Rotational Osteotomy (VRO): A Prospective Double-blinded, Randomized Control Trial (2015)

VRO surgery (i.e., varus rotational osteotomy) is conducted on many cerebral palsy patients to maintain a level pelvis, a balanced spine, and mobile pain free hips. The purpose of

Linking Neuroplasticity With the Outcomes of Walking-Based Interventions: a Feasibility Trial Comparing a Motor Learning Versus a Strength-Based Program in Children with Cerebral Palsy (2015)

Researchers compared the effectiveness of two different approaches in helping a child with CP improve their gait:  the strength-based approach verses the motor-based, or learning-based approach.  This information is important because

CP2: Community Partners for Children’s Participation – Pilot Project and Feasibility Study (2015)

The objective of this multi-site research was to identify the relationship between social deprivation, resources offered, and participation levels of children with CP. Then, based on these factors, interventions

Development of ICF-based Multimedia Education Modules and their Impact on Mother’s Knowledge and Attitude towards their Children with Cerebral Palsy (2015)

The World Health Organization has created a universal framework for health (i.e., the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health or ICF). Using the ICF framework, this project focused

Pilot Multi-center Evaluations of Reflex and Nonreflex changes in Cerebral Palsy Using a Portable Device (2014)

We must fully understand cerebral palsy (CP) symptoms to treat the disorder. Spastic hypertonia, a muscle impairment, prevents individuals from experiencing normal life. But it cannot be quantitatively evaluated

Computed Tomography and Ultrasound Guided Cryoablation of the Salivary Glands in a Porcine Model (2014)

This research tested cryoablation to permanently resolve the drooling that so many people from cerebral palsy suffer from.  Previously, temporary treatments produced dry-mouth side effects which can lead to

Outcomes of Hip Interventions for Children with Cerebral Palsy – An International Multi-Centre Prospective Comparative Cohort Study (2013)

This research compared outcomes for patients with CP based on when and if they receive surgery for hip dislocation. Such surgery is very common for people with CP, and

Effects of Functional Electrical Stimulation Neuroprosthesis in Children with Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy (2013)

Individuals with hemiplegic CP often use uncomfortable prosthetic devices that limit their mobility but help them retain balance. This grant test an alternative prosthetic that may be lower profile

Osteoporosis in Children with Cerebral Palsy (2013)

Treatments for low bone density in children with cerebral palsy (CP) are based on adult treatments. Better treatments will emerge when scientists study on their intended subjects. This grant
