Abstract [en]

Purpose. To describe the posture pattern of children with CP sitting in the chairs they use in the institution, where they receive treatment (O.S.P.), and to evaluate the change in the pattern when they are placed in the functional sedentary position (F.S.P.), a position scientifically described in the literature. Design. Descriptive, using the same children for group control. Sample. 40 children, 20 boys 20 girls, non-ambulatory, between 2 and 7 years of age, with different types of CP and varying degrees and topographical involvement. Method: Using video films and photography, and the Sitting Assesment Scale (S.A.S.) each child was evaluated for head control, trunk control, feet control and the function of their arms and hands for the O.S.P. and F.S.P. patterns obtained. Frequencies were distributed for the description of the results, and a qualifications/clínical condition corellation of the group was used to demonstrate the impact of the P.S.F. on each part evaluated. Conclusions. The results of the study showed that 100% of the subject achieved a better postural pattern when placed in the F.S.P. - The hypothesis of the improvement of the postural pattern of children which C.P. by inclining the back of the seat (First hypothesis of the FUNCTIONAL SEDENTARY POSITION) was proven. - In the designs, the footplate is considred a secondary element , ignoring the principle that the positioning of any segment of the body, even a distal part such as the feet, will improve the functionality and capacity for movement of other segements, but equally evidencing the lack of the concept of the sedentary position as a fascilitator of skills subsequency acquired.
