In a study published by Research in Developmental Disabilities in May 2018, a team of researchers in the Netherlands evaluated the posture control of 38 infants at very high risk of cerebral palsy. Focusing on evaluating the muscles used in the sitting position, the team’s findings showed that infants with cerebral palsy exhibited decreased postural muscle responses compared to children without cerebral palsy. To encourage proper posture and prevent certain limitations associated poor posture, researchers suggest the incorporation of postural training in playful ways. They note that use of adaptive seating systems may benefit children at risk of cerebral palsy up to 21 months old.
