However, the variables measured before BTA application and associated with motor function and independent mobility, known as predictors of functional outcomes, have not been well defined.
Objective: To identify clinical predictors of gains in functional motor skills and independence of mobility among children with CP, three and six months after BTA application.
Methods: This was a convenience sample of children with spastic CP (n=35).
Measurements of quantitative gains in motor skills and independence of mobility were taken three and six months after BTA application.
These outcomes were observed through...
