Balance master versus Treadmill training on dynamic balance in Hemiparetic Cerebral Palsied children
Purpose: The present research was conducted to study the differences between the effect of balance master system versus treadmill training on the dynamic balance in hemiparetic cerebral palsied children. Subjects and Methods: Thirty hemiparetic cerebral palsied children were included in the current research. The participated children in this study were children ranged from eight to twelve years. The children in this study were assigned randomly into two equal number groups (A and B). Group (A) received a traditional physical therapy program, in addition to Balance Master System training, while group (B) received the same traditional physical therapy program as the group (A), in addition to treadmill training. Balance Master System was applied to investigate the dynamic balance of all the children in both groups before and after twelve successive weeks of the treatment program. Results: The obtained results indicated significant differences in all the measured variables pre and post-treatment in both groups (A and B), while there were significant differences in post-treatment’s mean values in favor of group (B). Conclusion: The Balance Master System can be used as therapeutic intervention to improve dynamic balance in hemiparetic cerebral palsied children. Moreover, the balance master system and treadmill training can be added to the physical therapy program, and treadmill training has been better than Balance Master System training in order to improve dynamic balance in hemiparetic cerebral palsied children.
