The motion analysis team and community paediatric physiotherapy team work very closely with children who have movement disorders such as cerebral palsy and spina bifida. There is no doubt that these collaborations have vastly improved the long-term management of these children who have conditions that change their functional ability as they grow. It is still not possible to accurately predict the long-term outcomes for these children but improved management throughout their growth has beneficial effects for the rest of their lives. Over 350 patients have been seen, assessed and helped in providing vital information in their clinical management. The data obtained is also used for extensive research in order to further explore hidden information to enhance our evolving knowledge.
