A recent study in Disability and Rehabilitation examined physical activity and walking in children with cerebral palsy over time. The goal of the study was to create developmental trajectories for physical activity and walking performance for children with cerebral palsy.
The study included 79 children with cerebral palsy (Gross Motor Functional Classification System – GMFCS levels I–V). The average age of the participants was 7.6 years old. Each participant across GMFCS levels I–V wore an Actigraph to record physical activity. In addition, the children with GMFCS levels I-II also wore a StepWatch to measure walking performance.
