Punti di forza: utilizzo combinato di due strumenti per dare un punteggio di qualita agli studi: la scala di PEDro per la qualita metodologica e la tavola sui livelli di prova di efficacia/evidenza scientifica della AACPDM, poiche lo studio ha come target soggetti con PCI.
Sebbene 7 dei 10 studi fossero di livello I e II secondo la tabella AACPDM, la qualita metodologica era piuttosto povera per mancanza dei criteri 3,5,6,7 della scala di PEDro.
According to the AACPDM evidence table, 7studies could be classified at level 1 RCT but one study did not use statistical analysis of the results and so it was downgraded to Level 2 RCT.
Strengths: combined use of two instruments to grade the studies: the PEDro scale for the quality of methodology and the AACPDM evidence table, because the patients with CP were the target of this study.
Although 7 of the 10 studies were level I and II according to the AACPDM table, the quality of methodology was quite poor due to the lack of criteria 3,5,6,7 PEDro Scale.
