This national research study “Standing frames as postural management for children with spasticity, what is the acceptability of a trial to assess the efficacy of standing frames?” is being carried out by a research team led by Dr Jill Kisler from Newcastle University and is funded by the National Institute for Health Research Health Technology Assessment (NIHR HTA) programme.
The purpose of this study is to understand the current use of standing frames in children with cerebral palsy in the UK, and to consider how we may design a research trial or trials to develop clinical evidence for standing frame use.
