Basis for a method of dynamic proprioceptive correction in the restorative treatment of patients with residual-stage infantile cerebral palsy

Abstract

A new method for the restorative treatment of patients with residual-stage infantile cerebral palsy is described; the method is based on proprioceptive correction using an “Adeli-92” device, which is a modified space suit used in weightless conditions. The “Adeli-92” allows intensification and some extent of normalization of afferent proprioceptive mobility-controlling input. Positive clinical effects were obtained in 70% of patients, with improvements in walking and self-care ability. The positive effects of this method were demonstrated objectively using electroencephalography, electroneuromyography, studies of somatosensory evoked potentials, and studies of the vestibular system.
