Frame Running is becoming increasingly popular as a recreational and competitive sport for individuals with cerebral palsy across all GMFCS levels. Tune in to learn more!
In Episode 6, Jen talks with Physical Therapist and research Theresa Sukal Moulton and Frame Runner manufacturer/vendor David Black of RAD Innovations about the recreational and adaptive sport of Frame Running. A relatively new recreational sport in the US, a Frame Runner is an adaptive running frame that looks similar to a bike without pedals which allows individuals with CP to run or walk with minimal to no assistance. It has become popular internationally and is included as a sport in the World Para Athletics. David, Theresa and Jen discuss the history of Frame Running, who can participate, how it works, research to support it and how to get involved.
