Grip Strength and Body Composition  Study Summary

Status: Active  Timeline: September 2020-December 2021

Study Type: Pilot study

Brief Description:

The grip strength study seeks to establish a correlation between grip strength and body composition in cerebral palsy. People with CP are pre-disposed to lower strength and higher body fat composition which is a risk factor for chronic disease. This pilot study will test the feasibility of adding grip strength as a biomarker of body composition in the treatment of children and adults with CP.
