Embora a escala do GMFM ja apresente seus resultados em forma de percentual, para este estudo foi utilizado a variacao percentual em relacao a condicao inicial (avaliacao final- avaliacao inicial), uma vez que os grupos partiam de valores medios distintos no momento pre-tratamento.

The GMFM measures the child's overall functional abilities and consists of 88 items, divided into the following sections: (1) lying and rolling, (2) sitting, (3) crawling and kneeling, (4) standing, and (5) walking, running, and jumping.
During the second examination of GMFM test, our case got a full score from lying and rolling and sitting sections, all the activities of which she was able to perform independently.
Notably, one study  had mixed findings, observing remarkable enhancements on several variables (i.e., single leg stance test, right grip strength, and left grip strength), with no significant effects found for other outcomes after a Nintendo Wii Sports-based treatments (twice a week x 30 minutes per session for 10 weeks), including gait speed, timed up and go test, five-times-sit-to-stand test, timed up and down stairs test, 2-minute walk test, and gross motor skills assessed by the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM).

Brien and her colleagues used the CB&M, the 6MWT, the Timed Up and Down Stairs (TUDS) test, and the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM)--Dimension E.
It was an article that reviewed the development of [hyperbarics] in cerebral palsy, but secondly, it gathered all the studies that have been published thus far [on hyperbaric oxygen therapy in CP] and looked at those studies that reported an improvement in gross motor functional measures (GMFM), which is a standard test for children with cerebral palsy.
Gross motor function was assessed using the GMFM (Gross Motor Functional Measure), (25) a standardized tool that is considered the most reliable and objective way to measure gross motor function in children.
Results following treatment were an average of 5.3% improvement in GMFM and a notable absence of complications or clinical deterioration in any of the children.
Methods: Forty-one adolescent students with physical disabilities who attended a unit attached to a large secondary school were assessed at the beginning and end of a school year, using the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM).
