Course Description

CEU Course Description

Neuroplastic changes with a functional improvement can take place after training in people with lesions in the brain.  Due to practical and financial reasons, home-based training is becoming ever more important for rehabilitation of a number of different conditions.  The goal of this CEU course is to investigate whether individualized and supervised interactive home-based training delivered through the internet improves functional abilities in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP). We will investigate a twenty-week interactive training program with thirty-four children aged 9-16 years of age in a non-randomized controlled clinical training study, where the results were evaluated immediately after the training, as well as 12 weeks later. The outcome measures used were the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills, the Upper Limb Function Test via Assisting Hand Assessment, functional lower extremity strength by performance of sit-to-stand, step up, and half-kneel to stand, and finally the Romberg to assess balance.  

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Explain what is likely responsible for the improvements found in this study.
  2. Investigate what the large training effect obtained in the present study may be related to.
  3. Examine which functional changes were retained at the follow-up.
  4. Explore the outcome for performance on the balance tasks in the training modules.
  5. Describe what the training involved that lead to significant improvements in functional tests.
