About

To investigate physical fitness and activity levels in children with epilepsy and compare the results with healthy peers.

Full description

Many individuals with epilepsy are physically inactive due to the fear of seizures triggered by physical activity/ exercise, and the advices given by the family members and the health care professionals to avoid intense activity . In two studies performed about this subject, this is the probable reason why adult patients with epilepsy have a weaker physical fitness than healthy individuals in the control group. However; in a study of Drawskowski et al., the avoidance of activity and exercise in individuals with epilepsy was investigated, and it was reported that the injuries and seizure problems were rare even during very intense physical activity.
