abstract

The “National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke” defines Cerebral Palsy as a neurological disorder that affects body movement and muscle coordination. This condition usually appears at birth or during the first three years of life [3]. Treatment for children with Cerebral Palsy is extensive and can include any or all of the following: physical/occupational therapy, speech therapy, medicine, surgery, and orthopedic devices. Physical therapy involves having the child perform several repetitions of a set of exercises that will target the specific muscle group that needs to be worked on. A technique that has recently been employed in physical therapy is the use of video games [2], this allows the therapist to have the child perform similar sets of exercises while at the same time motivate and entertain the child.
