The feasibility and effectiveness of a year-long integrated rehabilitation program for young children (less than 6 years old) with cerebral palsy was evaluated, and efficacy of different treatment schedules was compared. A sample of 40 children (20 male; mean age, 3 years +/-1.22) took part: 20 presented with tetraparesis, 12 with diparesis, and 8 with(More)
In clinical practice, the great potential possessed by robots in extracting quantitative and meaningful data, is not always exploited. The aim of the present paper is to propose a simple parameter that allows to follow the performance of subjects during upper limb robotic training with no additional effort for patients or clinicians.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate if adding paediatric robotic-assisted gait training (RAGT) to task-oriented physiotherapy (TOP) in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) could improve gross motor abilities and gait compared to intensive TOP. Nineteen ambulatory children with Bilateral Spastic CP were assigned to two 10-week training groups. 9 children(More)
