Aim of this project

In this project we want to determine the physical fitness and physical activity of children with burns which is at least  10% of their total body surface area (TBSA). The results may lead to the development of new, and improvement of current physical therapy programs for children. This project started in december 2011 and is funded by the Dutch Burn Foundation.
