CONCLUSIONS: Trunk control appears to play a central role in gross motor function of infants and toddlers with DS. The SATCo has good psychometric properties in this population. WHAT THIS ADDS TO THE EVIDENCE: This study contributes to the literature on the psychometric properties of the SATCo and supports its use to measure trunk control in infants and toddlers with DS between the ages of 6 and 24 months.

Abstract Aims: To evaluate the effects of side-alternating vibration therapy on physical function and body composition in adolescents with Down syndrome.Methods: Fourteen adolescents (8 males) with Down syndrome (mean ± SD age: 15.5 ± 2.3 years) performed vibration treatment nine minutes daily, four times per week, for 20 weeks on a Galileo vibration platform. Data were collected at baseline and after 20 weeks of intervention. Assessments included six-minute walk test, muscle function (force plate), whole-body dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and perip...

Conclusiones: Un niño con SD se beneficia del tratamiento temprano, pero fal tan estudios comparables en cuanto a duración, edad y tipo de terapia.Resumo: A s índrome de Down (SD) ou a trissomia do cromossomo 21, é a anomalia congênita autossômica mais frequente, com prevalência global de 1 / 1.000, no Chile de 2.5 / 1.000 nascidos vivos. Devido aos distúrbios de crescimento, desenvolvimento e hipotonia muscular, as pessoas com SD apresentam boca ab erta com grande salivação, lábio inferior evertido, elevação do lábio superior in...

Abstract Students with Down syndrome (DS) receive school-based physical therapy (SBPT), however little data exists regarding services and outcomes. Using a prospective observational cohort study our aim was to explore SBPT activities and interventions, and students' goal achievement of 46 students with DS, tracked by 17 physical therapists (PTs). PTs provided on average 24.0 min/week direct service and 11.6 min/week services on behalf of the student. The most frequent activities employed were physical education/recreation, mobility, and sitting/standing/transitions. The most frequent interventions implem...
