Evidence of provision of extrinsic feedback for improvement and retention of upper limb kinematics in children with cerebral palsy (CP) is scarce, especially following training interventions using virtual environments. Benefits of using a virtual environment can range from increasing the participant’s motivation to the ease of adapting extrinsic feedback(More)
