Long-term effects of robotic hippotherapy on dynamic postural stability in cerebral palsy
Licensed under Public Domain
Dynamic postural instability is a common neuromuscular impairment in cerebral palsy (CP), which often includes balance dysfunction and an associated risk of serious falls. Robotic hippotherapy has recently become a widespread clinical application to facilitate postural core stabilization, strength, and endurance through repetitive vestibular and proprioceptive stimulation to the spine via the sensorimotor system pathways. However, the long-term effects of robotic hippotherapy on dynamic postural instability in CP remain unclear.
