Abstract:
Study comparing the efficacy and effects of exercise programming versus traditional outpatient therapy for children with severe burns. Participants were 21 children with burns covering > 40% of body surface area, who were randomly assigned to an exercise group (n = 11) and an outpatient group (n = 10). Results of evaluations at 6 and 9 months post-burn show that muscular strength and functional outcome (walked) increased significantly for both groups, and that increases were greater for the exercise group.
