Cerebral Palsy Therapy Australia

Postby CPAustralia » Tue Apr 04, 2017 5:32 pm

The Univeristy of Western Sydney in conjunction with Dr Kylie Steel, senior lecturer in motor skill acquisition, are conducting a trial to test a new psychological therapy for cerebral palsy in 2017 and 2018.

The therapy uses a Video Self Modelling paradigm which involves video taping the participant performing movement tasks such as reach and grasp movements and then playing the resulting footage back to them. The idea behind the therapy is that watching footage of yourself performing an action can help you to later visualize and execute movements with more precision. This paradigm has proved effective for many individuals including children with autism and professional athletes.

The trial is currently seeking Australian participants with hemiplegic Cerebral palsy to take part in the study. The trial has been approved by the University of Western Sydney Ethics Committee and compensation is provided to participants for their time.

This study is one of the only studies investigating the efficacy of Video Self Modelling in individuals with cerebral palsy in Australia and will contribute to the evidence base for therapies aimed at helping individuals with a movement disorder.
