Paediatric Evidence - What is available? Making the case for children’s funding...

Thu 24th Nov, 2011

This presentation discusses the literature available in paediatric FES.  All of the studies have results that demonstrate a trend to positive outcomes when FES is used with children with cerebral palsy (CP). There is however, a clear need for more rigorous research designs and larger studies. Positive outcomes are also noted clinically at Birmingham Children’s Hospital following treatment of our current small case load over a number of years for children with both CP and ABI. The stimulation appears to be well tolerated and have the positive effects of reducing the need for other orthotic devices, reducing the frequency of serial casting, increasing passive range and with time allowing the patient to access some active movement without the stimulation in place.
