Neonatal Seizure Registry - Developmental Functional EValuation

Neonatal seizures due to brain injury (acute symptomatic seizures) are associated with high risk of neurodevelopmental disability in infancy. Although prognosis in early childhood is a critical question for parents and providers, outcomes beyond infancy are largely unknown. Further, parents of infants with neonatal seizures are at risk for mental …

Phase N/A

Influence of Fatigue on the Walking Pattern in Cerebral Palsy Patients.

In most studies, the study of the gait of cerebral palsy patients is done through quantified walking analysis tests, objectively evaluating the kinetic and kinematic parameters, associated with the measurement of respiratory exchanges and heart rate. Nevertheless this very objective evaluation does not really reflect the child's ability to perform …

Phase N/A

Comparison of Somatometric Characteristics Between Cerebral Palsy and Normal Children Cross-sectional Multi Center Study

The purpose of this study is to: 1) secure basic data of patients with cerebral palsy, 2) seek ways to simplify the data for clinical application, 3) progress of hip dislocation, presence or absence of hip surgery, and The purpose of this study is to compare differences in body development …

The Effect of Task-oriented EMG-triggered ES on Upper Limb Motor Function in Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy

Upper limb spasticity greatly affects the hand functions of patients with cerebral palsy (CP) and impairs quality of life. The most important goal in rehabilitation; despite the existing deficiencies, the highest level of functional independence of the patient is to increase the quality of life. EMG-triggered biofeedback electrical stimulation (EMG-triggered-BF-ES) …

Phase N/A

Multidimensional Approach in Patients With Severe Cerebral Palsy Prospective Cohort(MAPCP Cohort)-Offline

Observation cohort study. The investigators will measure for finding evidence by checking the x-ray photograph, hip adductor muscles pressure test and electromyography(EMG test) test of hip adductor and spine muscles

Phase N/A

Pros and Cons of Botulinum Injection Treatment in Cerebral Palsy

Spasticity is defined as an increase in physiological resistance of the muscles associated with a lack of supraspinal inhibition against passive strain. It is a common and prohibitive problem associated with an increase in tendon reflex and tension reflex associated with upper motor neuron dysfunction. One of the most common …

Phase N/A

Cerebral Palsy and the Study of Brain Activity During Motor Tasks

Objective Neural imaging during functional tasks has become more portable and accessible than magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) by utilizing non-invasive near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) as a means to isolate areas of brain activity by measuring blood flow dynamics and electroencephalography (EEG) to measure electrical activity on the cortical surface. Although use …

Phase N/A

Dopamine and Motor Learning in Cerebral Palsy

Objective The broad objective of this study is to determine the relationship between variations in genes related to dopamine (DA) neurotransmission in areas of the brain associated with motor leaning (e.g. DRD1, DRD2, DRD3, COMT, DAT) and/or to activity-dependent brain plasticity (e.g. BDNF) and differences in motor learning rates and …

Phase N/A

Sensors for Communication for Persons Who Cannot Communicate Unequivocally

Heart rate (HR) is considered to reflect a persons autonomic response to situations, whether external (what happens around us) or internal (pain or pleasure, joy or fear). Some persons with severe intellectual disability or comprehensive cerebral palsy or childhood autism cannot communicate unequivocally, either because they lack the cognitive prerequisites …

Phase N/A

Can Gait Analysis and Ultrasound Detect a Change in Calf Musculature in Children With Cerebral Palsy?

The aim of this study is to investigate the impact on gait and morphology of the calf muscle in children with Cerebral Palsy with equinus gait pattern following serial casting and Botulinum toxin (Btx) interventions. Toe walking is a common feature of a number of orthopaedic and neurological problems (e.g. …
