We are currently recruiting children with bilateral cerebral palsy (BCP) for a FREE study investigating the applicability and differences between an automated Trunk-Support-Trainer (TruST) and a rigid trunk support while your child receives an intensive postural-reaching intervention. In this study, all children will receive the same intervention but will be randomized to either the automated-TruST or rigid trunk support group.
Participants will enrolled on a rolling basis.
