Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Effects of K-Tape on Walking Pattern, Muscle Activity, and Motor Performance in Children With and Without Developmental Coordination Disorder: a Randomized Controlled Trial
Study Start Date : January 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Normal children with K Tape Other: K tape
Applying K tape to children to the lower limb muscles during motor activities.

No Intervention: Normal children without K Tape
Experimental: DCD with K Tape Other: K tape

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in lower limb muscle activation as measured by electromyography [ Time Frame: Day 1 and day 2 (ms) ]
    Post K Tape lower limb muscle activity - pre K Tape lower limb muscle activation


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in balance performance as measured by force plate [ Time Frame: Day 1 and day 2 ]
    Post K Tape balance performance - pre K Tape balance performance

  2. Foot posture as assessed by clinical observation [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 2 ]
  3. Body composition as assessed by DXA [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 2 ]
  4. Change in walking pattern as assessed by a motion analysis system [ Time Frame: Day 1 and day 2 ]
    Post K Tape walking pattern - pre K Tape walking pattern
