ROBOTIC MECHANOTHERAPY IN REHABILITATION OF CHILDREN WITH CEREBRAL PALSY AFTER COMBINED ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY

Cover Page

Abstract


The article represents a clinical research of 20 patients with infantile cerebral paralysis, who had got an early motor rehabilitation after complex orthopedic and neurosurgical treatment. The comparative analysis of results after traditional exercise therapy and mechanotherapy was carried out with the use of robotic system “Lokomat”. It was set up that early use of robotized mechanotherapy during postoperative period reduces significantly the time of motor rehabilitation in comparison with traditional exercise therapy.
