European and Australian Cerebral Palsy Surveillance Networks Working Together for Collaborative Research
Two CP networks representing two continents have compared their major characteristics to facilitate the comparison across their study populations. These characteristics proved to be similar with only marginal differences. This gives additional strength to the observation in both networks that CP prevalence is decreasing which is of great importance for families and health care systems.
Strength Training to Improve Performance in Athletes With Cerebral Palsy: A Systematic Review of Current Evidence
Persons with cerebral palsy (CP) can partake in many different forms of organized sport including elite competition at state and international levels. There is limited evidence on how CP athletes should train to enhance performance. The purposes of this article were to conduct a systematic review of the current evidence on ambulatory individuals with CP for (a) strength and functional improvement through strength training; (b) potential sports performance improvement through strength training; (c) the identification of risk and special considerations associated with strength and conditioning for this population, and; (d) the identification of future research foci to educate strength and conditioning coaches on specific program design for elite CP athletes.
