BACKGROUND Acquired brain injury (ABI) refers to multiple disabilities arising from damage to the brain acquired after birth. Children with an ABI may experience physical, cognitive, social and emotional-behavioural impairments which can impact their ability to participate in activities of daily living (ADL). Recent developments in technology have led to(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare efficacy of a web-based multimodal training programme, 'Move it to improve it' (MitiiTM), to usual care on gross motor capacity and performance for children with an acquired brain injury. DESIGN Randomized waitlist controlled trial. SETTING Home environment. PARTICIPANTS A total of 60 independently ambulant children (30 in each(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine test-re-test reproducibility of the Timed Up & Go (TUG) test, 30-second repetition maximum (repmax) of functional exercises, 6-Minute Walk Test (6MWT) and High-level Mobility Assessment Tool (HiMAT) in children with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). Secondarily, to assess the accuracy between hand-timed and video-timed scores for the TUG(More)
AIM To examine the reproducibility in measurement of physical activity performance using the ActiGraph® GT3X+ accelerometer in children aged 8-16 years with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). METHODS Reproducibility of standardized tasks: Thirty-two children with ABI (12 years 1 month, SD = 2 years 4 months; 20 males; Gross Motor Function Classification System(More)
The simultaneous recording of bilateral electrodermal activity (skin potential responses) on both right and left hands (the reference electrode being located on the forearm under the skin) on 30 right-handed subjects during the reflection phase of a verbal cognitive task and a stressful situation showed that, contrary to the expectations related to the(More)

The simultaneous recording of spontaneous EDA (mono and diphasic SPR), HR and mood self-rating (Q-sort of adjectives), on 35 normal subjects, for 5 consecutive weeks has shown that: (1) The emission of diphasic SPR is significantly related to an increase in monophasic EDA (in frequency and in amplitude) and to a lesser degree with HR acceleration; (2) Such(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the validity of the ActiGraph accelerometer (AG) to differentiate between standardized, physical activity tasks using oxygen consumption ((Equation is included in full-text article.)O2) as the criterion measure in children and adolescents with an acquired brain injury; to determine vector magnitude activity intensity cut-points; to(More)
Bilateral electrodermal levels and responses were recorded during an emotional and neutral slide projection in high and low trait anxiety subjects. Half of the subjects of each group received reassuring instructions the other half received stressful instructions. Levels were more symmetrical in anxious subjects but asymmetry was not influenced by(More)
AIM To systematically review the efficacy of physiotherapy interventions to improve gross motor capacity, performance and societal participation in children aged 5-17 years with an acquired brain injury (ABI). METHODS Randomized and non-randomized controlled trials, cohort, case series, case-control and case studies were included and classified according(More)
