This article is from Journal of Physical Therapy Science, volume 25.AbstractPurpose Cerebral palsy is a sensorimotor disorder that affects the control of posture and movement. The Nintendo® Wii Fit offers an inexpensive, enjoyable, suitable alternative to more complex systems for children with cerebral palsy. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacacy of Wii-based balance therapy for children with ambulatory cerebral palsy. Subjects This pilot study design included fourteen ambulatory patients with cerebral palsy 11 males, 3 females; mean age 12.07 ± 3.36 years. Methods Balance functions before and after treatment were evaluated using one leg standing, the functional reach test, the timed up and go test, and the 6-minute walking test. The physiotherapist prescribed the Wii Fit activities,and supervised and supported the patients during the therapy sessions. Exercises were performed in a standardized program 2 times a week for 12 weeks. Results Balance ability of every patient improved. Statistically significant improvements were found in all outcome measures after 12 weeks. Conclusion The results suggest that the Nintendo® Wii Fit provides a safe, enjoyable, suitable and effective method that can be added to conventional treatments to improve the static balance of patients with cerebral palsy; however, further work is required.
