Abstract
Objective To investigate the effect of the body shape molded inner system on attenuation of spinal curvature and pelvic obliquity in cerebral palsy (CP) with scoliosis. Method Fifteen patients with CP who had fixed or non-fixed scoliosis were recruited. By radiographic studies, Cobb's angle and pelvic obliquity were measured with or without sitting in the body shape molded inner system. Results Spinal curvature assessed by Cobb's angle was significantly reduced when CP patients were seated in the body shape molded inner system rather than in conventional seats. Although pelvic obliquity was not improved in patients with fixed scoliosis, it was significantly ameliorated in patients with non-fixed scoliosis when seated in the body shape molded inner system. Conclusion The body shape molded inner system attenuated spinal curvature and pelvic obliquity in CP patients with non-fixed scoliosis which had a flexible spinal curve
