Respiratory functional and motor control deficits in children with spinal cord injury.

The purpose of this study was the comparative evaluation of respiratory motor function in children with SCI. We demonstrated that SCI-induced decrease in respiratory functional capacity in children is age-dependent and is associated with impaired respiratory muscle activation. Evaluation of respiratory function in conjunction with multi-muscle sEMG can be used as a tool to assess the impact of various rehabilitative interventions in children with SCI.
