Impact of intensive upper limb rehabilitation on quality of life: a randomized trial in children with unilateral cerebral palsy

Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology, 04/06/2012

Intensive goal–directed upper limb training programmes using either constraint–induced movement therapy (CIMT) or bimanual training (BIM) achieved domain–specific changes in quality of life relating to feelings about functioning and participation and physical health. A condition–specific quality of life compared with a generic measure may be better able to detect changes in quality of life in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (CP).
