|Official Title:||Targeted Hip Progressive Resistance Training to Improve Single Leg Balance and Walking in Children With Cerebral Palsy|
|Study Start Date :||December 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||March 2013|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||March 2013|
|Experimental: home progressive resistance exercise||
Other: Usual care plus progresive resistance training
Duration 8 weeks; two weeks of familiarisation with the intervention protocol without resistance (for familiarisation and neural adaptation) followed by 6 weeks progressive resistance (PR). The three times a week PR training will be as a home exercise program with fortnightly home visits to monitor/progress PR training. It comprises a 4 minute warm up and cool down with one exercise targeting the hip abductors and one the lateral rotators. Exercise prescription will follow existing guidelines for progressive PR training. Parents will be taught supervision by the researcher using clear explanations in words and pictures in a logbook. Logbooks have been found to facilitate compliance, dosage and motivation.
