Learning Early Travel Skills: Effects of Power Mobility on the Development and Function of Young Children With Severe Motor Impairments

The purpose this study is to determine the effects of power mobility on the development and function of young children of young children whose severe physical disabilities limit their exploratory behaviors and may unnecessarily restrict their cognitive, communication, and social-emotional development.

Phase 2
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Arthrogryposis
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • Other Central Nervous System or Musculoskeletal Disorders
  • Other: Power mobility
    Project staff will use structured power mobility training program to teach the children to use the power mobility devices. Project staff will schedule 1-hour sessions with each family 3 times per week for the first month of the project and will decrease in the following manner as the child becomes proficient and develops basic wheelchair maneuvering skills: two one-hour session per week for 4 weeks; one one-hour session per week for 4 weeks; two one-hour sessions per month for 4 weeks; one one-hour session per month for the remainder of the study.
  • Other: No intervention
    Children in the control group will not receive any additional intervention, but will continue to receive the early intervention or other services they were receiving prior to enrollment in this study.
  • Experimental: Power mobility
    Intervention: Other: Power mobility
  • No Intervention: Control
    Intervention: Other: No intervention
