The effects of patterned sensory enhancement (PSE) music on muscle power and movement control in children with spastic diplegia (SD) during loaded sit-to-stand (LSTS) were investigated. Twenty-three children with SD aged 5 to 12 years were recruited. Individualized PSE was composed by a music therapist based on each subject's sit-to-stand (STS) movement with 50% 1-repetition maximum load. Each subject performed LSTS continuously for eight repetitions under randomly assigned music or no-music (Control) conditions while the kinematic and kinetic data were measured simultaneously. For the music condition, PSE music was played only during the first five repetitions (PSE condition), and the following three repetitions were referred to as the Continuation condition. Paired t- or Wilcoxon signed rank tests were used to compare the variables between the PSE and Control conditions, and between the Continuation and Control conditions. Compared to the Control condition, greater peak knee extensor power (P= 0.009), greater total extensor power (P= 0.015), and better center-of-mass smoothness (P= 0.01), but less movement time (P= 0.003) were found in the PSE condition. Significant effects of the PSE music on the above variables were also found for Continuation condition. The current results showed that individualized PSE music helped improve the performance of LSTS in children with SD. The associated biomechanical features also continued to exist in subsequent movement cycles after the music had ceased. These findings suggest that therapy using LSTS combined with PSE music may be beneficial for rehabilitating children with SD. ? 2010 Elsevier B.V.
