Recruiting Participants: Project ACT NOW (Adults with Cerebral Palsy Training to INcrease Overall Wellness)

Project ACT NOW is a new study being conducted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) through the Division of Physical Therapy, Center for Human Movement Science. The purposes are to obtain a better understanding of the effects of aging on the development of secondary impairments experienced by adults with cerebral palsy (CP) and to determine the effects of an aquatic exercise intervention on improving the quality of life and overall function in adults with CP.

Adults that are 21 years and older and have CP are being recruited. Testing will be conducted at UNC-CH and will measure muscle strength, body composition, aerobic fitness and health-related quality of life. Participants are compensated for testing time as well as travel during the exercise intervention. Project ACT NOW has been approved by the UNC-CH IRB (GCRC #2089) and is fully funded by the National Institutes of Health.
