What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

A systematic review of common physiotherapy interventions in school-aged children with cerebral palsy A systematic review of common physiotherapy interventions in school-aged children with cerebral palsy A systematic review of common physiotherapy interventions in school-aged children with cerebral palsy Martin L, Baker R, Harvey A CRD summary The authors concluded that there was strong evidence for interventions to strengthen targeted muscle groups, and emerging evidence for functional (...) training, in children with cerebral palsy. This was a generally well-conducted review, but the limitations of the evidence (small studies at a high risk of bias), suggest that the authors' conclusions may be over optimistic. Authors' objectives To review the evidence for the effectiveness of commonly used physiotherapy interventions, for children with cerebral palsy, aged four to 18 years. Searching The authors searched MEDLINE, CINAHL, EMBASE, PEDro and The Cochrane Library, for articles from 1995
