About

The aim of our study is to reveal the results of circuit training to be applied to the children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) for improving their muscular strength and trunk control and also to determine their effects in terms of activity limitations and participation limits.

Full description

According the power analyzes totally 62 children, as 31 per each group, who were diagnosed with Spastic type CP and accepting participation for the study will be included in this study. For every case, socio demographic data and clinical features will be recorded. In the first session their gross motor function, muscular tonus in lower extremities, isometric strength of lower extremity muscles, functional muscular strength of the trunk and the lower extremities, walking speed and main mobility, functional motor performance will be assessed by a physiotherapist. Also satisfaction of children from the exercises, activity and participation level and quality of life will be evaluated. Then Covariant Focused Randomization Method will be used for having similarity in terms of factors such as; age, gender and motor function levels and also for having a balanced and equal case number of control and intervention group. The control group participants will continue to their own previous physiotherapy approaches (Bobath approach, traditional physiotherapy, etc.). "Circuit exercise training" will be given to the intervention group participants during 10 weeks, 3 times a week and that changes 50-60 minutes. At the end of the 10 weeks, the above evaluation parameters will be repeated
