Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


This case study explored the factors that influence the experience of night-time postural management equipment by children with cerebral palsy in the South-West of England. The aims were to explore the views of children on using a sleep system, the role of their parents and therapist in its use and the quality of sleep experienced before and during use of a sleep system. Further objectives were the identification of factors that affect the use of sleep systems and the production of findings to guide therapists’ clinical practice.
