Aim: To investigate the effectiveness of a novel elastic taping-augmented functional movement power training (KT-FMPT) program in improving leg muscular performance, body balance, motor proficiency and functional independence in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD).
Methodology: In this clinical trial, twenty children with DCD (aged 6-12) will be randomly assigned to either a KT-FMPT group or a placebo control group. Children in the KT-FMPT and control groups will receive elastic taping-augmented FMPT and general jogging exercise with non-elastic taping, respectively, for 12 weeks (2 hours/week). Major outcome measures: body balance and leg muscle activity will be measured via muscle sensors along with a force platform. Secondary outcome measures: leg muscle strength, motor proficiency and functional independence will be assessed by a digital dynamometer, the Movement Assessment Battery for Children-2 and Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory, respectively (before- and after-intervention measurements).
Significance: The KT-FMPT group is predicted to display much better muscular and motor performances than the control group. This novel training program can be readily adopted in clinical, school, or home settings to improve functional independence in children with DCD, an outcome with positive socioeconomic implications. Moreover, study findings will inspire future research work in children with other childhood-onset disabilities.
