Purpose: To assess effects of adaptive bungee trampoline training for children with cerebral palsy. Methods: This was a single-subject intervention study, A-B-A, with 4 children aged 6 to 11 years. Measurements included muscle strength, balance, functional muscle strength, functional mobility, selected Gross Motor Function Measure items, heart rate, enjoyment, and for adverse effects—range of motion and spasticity. Goals were measured using the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure. Results: Lower limb muscle strength improved in 3 children, and balance and functional strength in 2 children. The child who was not walking increased sitting and supported standing times. All participants had clinically significant increases on the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure. Adherence and enjoyment were high, with no adverse effects. Conclusion: Adaptive bungee trampoline training can improve strength, balance, and functional mobility in children with cerebral palsy.
