" Children performed a maximal exercise test and a Wingate test on the Lode Corival ergometer"

Within the Learn 2 Move research project the level of physical fitness of children with cerebral palsy in the age of 7-12 years was investigated. In order to investigate the level of physical fitness the children performed a maximal exercise test and a Wingate test on the Lode Corival ergometer. The LEM software was used to perform the Wingate test. The adjustable cranks enabled adjustment of the crank length for each child. The results showed that physical fitness is decreased in children with cerebral palsy. Therefore, we have implemented these tests, with use of the Lode ergometer and LEM software, in clinical care.
