ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to find out the effects of active tactile stimulation reinforcement on hand function of the children with spastic cerebral palsy. The subjects were 16 children, age between 6 to 10 years old, with spastic cerebral palsy. They were randomly divided into two groups(an experimental group of 8 subjects and a control group of 8 subjects). The treatment program was performed 40 minutes two times a week for 12 weeks. The experimental group was treated by both hand functional training exercise and active tactile sensory stimulation. The control group was treated by conventional hand functional training exercise. The Jebsen Hand Function Test was used to measure the differences between the dominant hand and nondominant hand. First, in comparison of total performance time before and after application of the treatment program for the experimental group, the significant difference showed in nondominant hand(p=0.023). Second, in comparison of changes of total performance time before and after application of the treatment program between the experimental group and the control group, there was siginificant difference in nondominant hand(p=0.018). This study shows that the active tactile stimulation reinforcement is effective on improving hand function of the children with spastic cerebral palsy.
