What is CP - Cerebral Palsy?
Problems in Cerebral Palsy?
Contracture: This is a muscle tissue shortening due to severe muscle tightening (spasticity). Contracture severeal times inhibit bone growth, cause the bones to bend, and results in joint to deform causing joint deformities, dislocation or partial dislocation.
Premature aging: Some type of premature aging will affect most people with cerebral palsy in their 40s because of the strain the condition puts on their bodies.
Malnutrition: Swallowing or feeding problems can make it difficult for someone who has cerebral palsy, particularly an infant, to get enough nutrition. This can impair growth and weaken bones. Some children need a feeding tube to get enough nutrition to their bodies.
Mental health conditions: People with cerebral palsy might have mental health conditions, such as depression. Social isolation and the challenges of coping with disabilities can contribute to depression.
Heart and lung disease: People with cerebral palsy may develop heart disease and lung disease and breathing disorders.
Osteoarthritis: Pressure on joints or abnormal alignment of joints from muscle spasticity may lead to the early onset of this painful degenerative bone disease.
Osteopenia: Fractures due to low bone density (osteopenia) can stem from several common factors such as lack of mobility, nutritional shortcomings and anti-epileptic drug use.
Cerebral Palsy - Mobility Aids
There are numerous mobility aids, also called assistive devices, to help with mobility limitations that are associated with cerebral palsy. Most mobility aids can be adjusted to fit a child’s height or can be specially made to fit their individual needs. These custom made cerebral palsy mobility aids can greatly improve a child’s quality of life, as well as increase their independence.
These devices can be simply explained are braces worn externally that improve and strengthen mobility.
There are two types of orthotic devices: accommodative orthotics and functional orthotics.
These are “over the counter” devices, which can be purchased from the market - and do not need an approval from the doctor.
They are made in various sizes to fit anyone and can be bought in most pharmacies or sporting goods stores.
These devices are specifically made for the individual.
Orthotic devices come in a great variety of forms - they can be hard, semi-soft or soft forms. Let's look at some types of orthotic braces, including:
Prophylactic braces (mostly used for knee injuries)
Cerebral Palsy Walker
Walkers can help in assisting children with cerebral palsy with their mobility issues, including problems with balance and posture. They also allow the child to bear weight on their legs, which increases bone strength and reduces the risk of fractures and osteoporosis.

They have a built-in seat that allows the child to go from sitting to standing easily and often.

These walkers have four posts with wheels on each and a suspension frame over head. A harness with a motorized lift attaches to the suspension frame, allowing the child to control how much weight they bear on their legs.
