Thanks to the generosity of The Honda Foundation, ECU PhD student Sue McCabe is able to continue her vital sleep study into heat regulation of children with Cerebral Palsy. The money from The Honda Foundation will provide essential software that measures heart rate variability to better understand the sleep behaviours of children with serious neurological conditions.
"The funding from The Honda Foundation means that I can continue my clinical trial in 2017 from April until September, with additional participants, to make this a robust study," she said.
"We had 10 participants in 2016, and plan to recruit a further 12 participants this year; they are children or young people with cerebral palsy and difficulties with sleep, due to having trouble regulating their body temperature” said Sue.
Without organisations such as The Honda Foundation, vital research into how to make life better for children and families who live with Cerebral Palsy would not be possible” Sue said.
ECU would like to thank The Honda Foundation for their generous support of research at Edith Cowan University.
