4. A Novel Mobility Device to Improve Walking for a Child With Cerebral Palsy
Andrea Fergus, PT, PhDShenandoah University, Winchester, Virginia.
A device called the Upsee that helps carers teach children how to walk is described as: a “dual orthotic device”. Every time the adult takes a step so does the child because the Upsee has sandals for both of them that are physically attached. At Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia, Andrea Fergus has been using it to help a child with cerebral palsy.  She tells the podcast about the positive experiences she’s had with the device so far.

Carlo Vialu, PT, MBA; Maura Doyle, PT, DPT, MS, PCSSt Mary’s Home Care (Mr Vialu), New York, New York; Physical Therapy Department (Dr Doyle), New York City Department of Education, New York,
New York.
The United States helps citizens with disabilities by following the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act—IDEA for short. This provides students in public education access to a number of services—among them physical therapy.  What IDEA does not do, however, is to specify precisely what the physical therapy should consist of.  In the podcast Carlo Vialu picks up the baton. 

7. Comparing Unimanual and Bimanual Training in Upper Extremity Function in Children With Unilateral Cerebral Palsy

Student Outcomes of School-based Physical Therapy as Measured by the School Function Assessment
It may be a given—all over America at least—that having the services of a physical therapist is a great benefit to any school, but until now the benefit had not been quantified or evaluated in terms of hard data.  This has now changed with a report from a wide-ranging survey in 28 states.  Susan Effgen PT, PhD, FAPTA, from the University of Kentucky in Lexington talks about her findings.

In the latest Pediatric Physical Therapy podcast:

Vertigo was identified and cured in two children through the use of infrared goggles and a physical therapy maneuver. Jennifer Fay, author of a new report on benign positional vertigo, talks about her approach to investigation and treatment of this disabling condition.

Elise Townsend discusses her group’s research on the benefit of supporting standing among some—but not all—children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Treadmill training in a group can benefit children with neurodevelopmental impairment according to Katrin Mattern-Baxter, author of a report which found that children enjoy a group approach to gym-workouts just as some adults do.  

External trunk support can benefit children with physical disability, says Victor Santamaria who found that best improvement in motor performance is achieved when the external assistance is matched to the child’s intrinsic level of trunk control.

Evidence-based recommendations about intervening with stretching exercises have emerged from a review published by Jason Craig who found stretch interventions work better in some situations than others.

An exoskeleton has been helping an infant to reach and play with toys.  Lead author Michele Lobo tells the podcast how.

Car seats were found to affect the way children move their legs in an investigation conducted by Jiang, de Armendi and Smith. Beth Smith says this needs to be further investigated to assess the impact of restraint devices in typical development and in children considered at risk of developmental delay.
