Robotic Device Encourages Movement in Babies with Cerebral Palsy

Robotic Device Encourages Movement in Babies with Cerebral Palsy

A robotic exoskeleton is being developed by a team at the University of Oklahoma to help babies with cerebral palsy  move and crawl. When treated at a very young age, therapies can help mitigate the effects of the disorder, which is caused by brain damage. The new machine is far from finished, the team indicates, but is currently undergoing a trial gathering brain activity data from 56 infants through the device’s electroencephalogram (EEG) cap. Encouraging movement and brain growth through therapies like this may help children with cerebral palsy develop the motor skills they lack and to help decrease the long term effects of physical and neurological damage.
