1. Garzon Mouthon, Luisa Carolina. Using Functional Electrical Stimulation to Improve Upper Limb Function: Determining Feasibility and Effectiveness in Children with Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy.

Degree: 2017, University of Toronto

Children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP) often have impaired reaching and grasping. Multichannel-functional electrical stimulation (mFES) therapy has been used for upper limb rehabilitation after adult stroke, but treatment response in HCP has seldom been studied. Furthermore, most of the previous investigations on the use of FES in cerebral palsy have employed systems that only stimulate one to two muscles at a time. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of upper limb mFES in children HCP. Feasibility indicators for recruitment, adherence, safety, and pain/discomfort were assessed, and clinical effectiveness outcomes were collected before, immediately after, and six-month post-intervention for three children with HCP (6 – 13 years; MACS: I–II). Criteria were met for all feasibility indicators, except recruitment. Grasping ability as measured by the Quality of Upper Extremity Skills Test (QUEST) grasp domain improved in two out of three children post-test, while another child’s ability deteriorated. Performance changes on remaining outcomes were low and evidence for positive response was inconclusive.

2. D'Souza, Samantha. Investigating Sensory Plasticity in Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy following Constraint Induced Movement Therapy.

Degree: 2016, University of Toronto

Children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP) experience upper limb sensory processing and motor deficits. While constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is effective in improving motor hand function in HCP, its impact on sensory function remains under-investigated. The present study evaluates the effectiveness of CIMT on sensory function in children with HCP using neuroimaging and clinical diagnostic tools. Ten children with HCP attended a three-week CIMT intervention with the integration of a sensory component to optimize potential sensory change. Both magnetoencephalography (MEG) and clinical sensory/motor assessments were completed at: baseline (one week prior to CIMT), one and six months post-baseline. Clinical sensory and MEG measures were compared between all three time points. CIMT did not result in significant changes in clinical sensory modalities or MEG somatosensory processing of the affected hand. This is the first study to investigate the effect of CIMT on sensory function utilizing clinical sensory measures and neural processing.
