Exercise interventions for cerebral palsy

For children with CP, there is evidence that aerobic exercise may result in a small improvement in gross motor function, though it does not improve gait speed.

Effects of passive versus dynamic loading interventions on bone health in children who are nonambulatory.

Dynamic standing demonstrated the potential of moderate-magnitude, low-frequency loading to increase cortical BMD. Further investigations could provide insight into the mechanisms of bone health induced through loading interventions.
