Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This research explores how an eight-day CIMT camp improves postural symmetry in children with cerebral palsy. A pressure mapping system was used while participants engaged in functional static and dynamic tasks to assess how improvements in postural symmetry related to functional task performance. Improvements were found in both static sitting and standing tasks. The uses and feasibility of pressure mapping systems within clinical applications will also be explored.
