Hippotherapy Simulator Designed as Therapy Equipment for Children with Cerebral Palsy

Hippotherapy, the use of horseback riding as a therapeutic or rehabilitative treatment, has been prescribed to improve coordination, balance, and strength in individuals with conditions such as cerebral palsy. However, access to equestrian centers is limited, and costs are not always covered by insurance, making this unique treatment inaccessible to many candidates. Dr. Justin Burton and Dr. Olga Morozova, pediatric rehabilitation medicine physicians, recently developed a horseback riding simulator for children with disabilities. The simulator engages the torso, requiring the child to maintain control of his or her posture with the core (trunk) of the body. “We believe patients who have good head control but have difficulty with trunk strength and/or trunk control would benefit most from this therapy,” Dr. Burton says.
