BACKGROUND Cerebral Palsy (CP) presents changes in posture and movement as a core characteristic, which requires multiprofessional clinical treatments during children's habilitation or rehabilitation. Besides clinical treatment, it is fundamental that professionals use evaluation systems to quantify the difficulties presented to the individual and their(More)
BACKGROUND The time synchronization is a very important ability for the acquisition and performance of motor skills that generate the need to adapt the actions of body segments to external events of the environment that are changing their position in space. Down Syndrome (DS) individuals may present some deficits to perform tasks with synchronization(More)
Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that progressively compromises motor control and cognition. Recently, the new generation of video games has been used to promote motor cognitive training. These studies have shown improvement on postural control, cognition and performance of daily living activities in patients with Parkinson's disease. The(More)
BACKGROUND The Stroke remains one of the major chronic diseases worldwide, and is considered a major cause of disability, which results not only in persistent neurological deficits, but also in the high physical deconditioning, nevertheless there are not many forms of assessing functional capacity in this population. We aimed to investigate the feasibility(More)
