Although sports classification for cerebral palsy has been in use for several years, it is complicated both for training and for scoring. People with cerebral palsy are difficult to fit into classification systems that are appropriate for other disability groups. The aim of this report is to describe the development of a framework for a simple quantitative classification of cerebral palsy. It was designed to be easily understood by all who are investigating, treating, training, coaching, and working with spastic disabled people. The scoring system is accurate and quick, so long as the definitions of items listed are adhered to.

  • spasticity
  • sports
  • functional classification
