Towards the Development of a Longitudinal Rehabilitation Study for Postural Stability in Children with Cerebral Palsy

Children with cerebral palsy suffer from significant postural balance deficits. The standard for rehabilitation of postural balance is intensive physical therapy or single platform compliant balancing. However, current methods are restricted to single surfaces (non-side specific) and unable to further challenge stability with perturbations. This project aims to quantify the impact of compliant balance training with perturbations on functional balance and walking over the course of a 6-week rehabilitation program.
