Bimanual Training and Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy in Children With Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy
Background. Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) promotes hand function using intensive unimanual practice along with restraint of the less-affected hand. CIMT has not been compared with aExpand

Development of Hand Function and Precision Grip Control in Individuals With Cerebral Palsy: A 13-Year Follow-up Study
OBJECTIVE. Although children with cerebral palsy display large developmental differences in hand function from that of typically developing children by the age of 6 to 10 years, little is known aboutExpand

Influence of dual task constraints during walking for children.
The effects of dual-task constraints on bimanual coordination and walking in three age groups: young (4-6 years old), middle (7-9 years old), and older groups (10-13 years old) were examined.Expand

Bimanual coordination during a goal-directed task in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy
: Most studies of impaired hand function in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP) have focused on either the involved or the non-involved extremity in isolation. Coordination of the involvedExpand

The effect of intensive bimanual training on coordination of the hands in children with congenital hemiplegia.
Recent studies have suggested efficacy of intensive bimanual training in improving the quality and quantity of affected hand use in children with hemiplegia. However, it is not known whether suchExpand

Motor learning of a bimanual task in children with unilateral cerebral palsy.
Children with unilateral cerebral palsy (CP) have been shown to improve their motor performance with sufficient practice. However, little is known about how they learn goal-oriented tasks. In theExpand

The relationship between foot arch measurements and walking parameters in children
BackgroundWalking mechanics are influenced by body morphology. Foot arch height is one aspect of body morphology central to walking. However, generalizations about the relationship between archExpand

Influence of accuracy constraints on bimanual coordination during a goal-directed task in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy
Previously we found that children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP) have impaired bimanual coordination compared to typically developing children during a functional drawer-opening task. However,Expand

Feasibility of caregiver-directed home-based hand-arm bimanual intensive training: A brief report
Abstract Objective: To determine feasibility of a home-based, intensive bimanual intervention with children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy. Methods: Eleven children (aged 29–54 months)Expand
