Study Description
Brief Summary:
The aim of this randomized study is to develop a new motor assessment of space exploration in a 2D environment with upper limbs for children with spinal muscular atrophy 1 and 2 from 3 until 16 years old.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Spinal Muscular Atrophy Assessment, Self Other: Motor assessment

Detailed Description:
Thirty children are included in the prospective randomized study. They are evaluated with the new test, Space Exploration Test (TES), and with the Motor Function Measure (MFM), a gold standard scale. The objective is to compare the results and to demonstrate the complementarity of the two tools.

Study Design

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 30 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Other
Official Title: Development of a Space Exploration Assessment for Children With Spinal Muscular Atrophy
Anticipated Study Start Date : July 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 2020


Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Evaluation

Included patients will be invited to participate in 1 session, to be evaluated with the Motor Function Measure and the new test of space exploration, during 2 hours maximum, to compare scores with these 2 tests.

An occupational therapist will be required to install the patient in front of the table and to give the instructions.

Other: Motor assessment
An occupational therapist install the patient sitting in front of the test board and tell him the instructions
