New research published with Sussex Community NHS Trust

Two separate academic papers published recently describe research led by colleagues at Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust on we have collaborated.

One paper describes research led by Dr Will Farr testing feasibility of a randomised controlled trial design to evaluate home-based virtual reality therapy for children with cerebral palsy. The study suggested a definitive trial is feasible and that therapeutic use of Nintendo Wii Fit in-home was inexpensive and acceptable over periods of around six weeks.

The other paper describes research led by Dr Diane Sellers examining inter-observer reliability of Eating and Drinking Ability Classification System (EDACS) for cerebral palsy when used by speech and language therapists. The research also suggested that EDACS levels mostly stable over time. And that EDACS is best way to describe eating/drinking specifically.
