What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

4. The Effect of Intrathecal Baclofen in Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy: The IDYS Trial

The Effect of Intrathecal Baclofen in Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy: The IDYS Trial Intrathecal baclofen treatment is used for the treatment of dystonia in patients with severe dyskinetic cerebral palsy; however, the current level of evidence for the effect is low. The primary aim of this study was to provide evidence for the effect of intrathecal baclofen treatment on individual goals in patients with severe dyskinetic cerebral palsy.This multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled (...) trial was performed at 2 university medical centers in the Netherlands. Patients with severe dyskinetic cerebral palsy (Gross Motor Functioning Classification System level IV-V) aged 4 to 24 years who were eligible for intrathecal baclofen were included. Patients were assigned by block randomization (2:2) for treatment with intrathecal baclofen or placebo for 3 months via an implanted microinfusion pump. The primary outcome was goal attainment scaling of individual treatment goals (GAS T score

7. Efficacy of cycling interventions to improve function in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Efficacy of cycling interventions to improve function in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy: a systematic review and meta-analysis The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of cycling to improve function and reduce activity limitations in children with cerebral palsy; the optimal training parameters for improved function; and whether improvements in function can be retained.Six databases were searched (until February 2019) and articles were screened in duplicate. Randomized (...) when a poor-quality study was omitted.Cycling can improve muscle strength, balance and gross motor function in children with cerebral palsy; however, optimal training doses are yet to be determined. There was insufficient data to determine whether functional improvements can be retained. Conclusions were limited by small sample sizes, inconsistent outcome measures and a lack of follow-up testing.

8. Constraint-induced movement therapy in children with unilateral cerebral palsy. (PubMed)

Constraint-induced movement therapy in children with unilateral cerebral palsy. Unilateral cerebral palsy (CP) is a condition that affects muscle control and function on one side of the body. Children with unilateral CP experience difficulties using their hands together secondary to disturbances that occur in the developing fetal or infant brain. Often, the more affected limb is disregarded. Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) aims to increase use of the more affected upper limb

9. Efficacy of Armeo® Robotic Therapy Versus Conventional Therapy on Upper Limb Function in Children With Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy. (PubMed)

Efficacy of Armeo® Robotic Therapy Versus Conventional Therapy on Upper Limb Function in Children With Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy. The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of Armeo robotic therapy, compared with conventional therapy, on upper limb function in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.Thirty children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy, with ages ranging from 6 to 8 yrs, were selected for this randomized controlled study and randomly assigned to two groups. The study group (n (...) Ashworth Scale scores for the study and control groups were 1.6 (0.3) and 2 (0.5), respectively. Postinterventional Quality of Upper Extremity Skills Test total scores for the study and control groups were 84.6 (2.7) and 79.1 (2), respectively.Armeo robotic therapy is significantly more effective than conventional therapy in improving the upper limb quality of movement in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.
