Improving Quality of Life for Individuals with Cerebral Palsy through Treatment of Gait Impairment
How can the quality of life of those with cerebral palsy and associated gait impairment be improved? What needs to be done to ensure real progress in research? How can evidence for interventions be improved?
The Symposium brought together world-reknowned experts with a range of viewpoints to challenge each other and answer these questions, and prevent stagnation of outcomes. This publication unites these discussions to establish a framework to guide research efforts for the future and ensure meaningful progress. Authors consider how patient goals can be given more attention and ask how we can learn more details of the underlying neurological impairments.
- Challenges long-held assumptions to explore the current state of research, testing, and treatment.
- Topics are unified by common formats including bulleted key points and objectives, and specific research goals to make the results more rapidly accessible.
A useful resource for orthopaedic surgeons, physiatrists, physical therapists, kinesiologists, gait analysis experts, and other members of the interdisciplinary team involved in the identification and treatment of mobility impairments in children and young adults diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
