See What We're Doing in Cerebral Palsy Research
Nemours takes great pride in research so that we can better serve children today and in the future with the most advanced treatments available for cerebral palsy and other neuromuscular disorders.
One example is Nemours’ Pediatric Engineering Research Lab (PERL), part of the Center for Orthopedics Research and Development (CORD). Here, our researchers are responsible for developing amazing new technologies, devices, and therapies that can dramatically change the lives of kids with CP and other disorders.

About Clinical Trials
A clinical trial is a study that evaluates new medicines, new devices, new treatments, or new applications for old treatments. Clinical trials are safe and supervised by a qualified physician, under strict guidance of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Patient safety is extremely important to the FDA, to those conducting the studies, and to everyone at Nemours. In a clinical trial, children participating in the study are monitored closely – and families may refuse any aspect of the study treatment or completely discontinue their child’s participation in the clinical trial at any time.
