dc.description.abstractINTRODUCTION: Children with bilateral cerebral palsy often experience difficulties with posture, gross motor function and manual ability, impacting independence in daily life activities, participation and quality of life (QOL). Hand-Arm Bimanual Intensive Training Including Lower Extremity (HABIT-ILE) is a novel intensive motor intervention integrating upper and lower extremity training. This study aimed to compare HABIT-ILE to usual care in a large randomised controlled trial (RCT) in terms of gross motor function, manual ability, goal attainment, walking endurance, mobility, self-care and QOL. A within-trial cost-utility analysis will be conducted to synthesise costs and benefits of HABIT-ILE compared with usual care. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: 126 children with bilateral cerebral palsy aged 6-16 years will be recruited across three sites in Australia. Children will be stratified by site and Gross Motor Function Classification System and randomised using concealed allocation to either receiving HABIT-ILE immediately or being waitlisted for 26 weeks. HABIT-ILE will be delivered in groups of 8-12 children, for 6.5 hours per day for 10 days (total 65 hours, 2 weeks). Outcomes will be assessed at baseline, immediately following intervention, and then retention of effects will be tested at 26 weeks. Primary outcomes will be the Gross Motor Function Measure and ABILHAND-Kids. Secondary outcomes will be brain structural integrity, walking endurance, bimanual hand performance, self-care, mobility, performance and satisfaction with individualised goals, and QOL. Analyses will follow standard principles for RCTs using two-group comparisons on all participants on an intention-to-treat basis. Comparisons between groups for primary and secondary outcomes will be conducted using regression models. ETHICS AND DISSEMINATION: Ethics approval has been granted by the Medical Research Ethics Committee of Children's Health Queensland Hospital and the Health Service Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC/17/QRCH/282) of The University of Queensland (2018000017/HREC/17/QRCH/2820), and The Cerebral Palsy Alliance Ethics Committee (2018_04_01/HREC/17/QRCH/282). TRIAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: ACTRN12618000164291.
