In diesem Kapitel wird der Einfluss der Extremitäten zur Verbesserung der Rumpffunktion dargestellt. Für normale motorische Funktionen ist eine gute Rumpfaktivität wichtig. Der Patient gewinnt die Kontrolle über seine Arme und Beine eher, wenn er imstande ist, seinen Rumpf effektiv und gezielt zu bewegen und zu stabilisieren.
