Abstract

A case study is to provide evidence of the feasibility, acceptance, and benefits of a computer game-assisted
repetitive task practice platform (G-RTP) in Upper extremity (UE) motor function of a child with Cerebral
Palsy (CP).
Method: 4 year old left spastic CP was provided an individualized game-assisted therapy of 16 weeks.
Outcome measures included PDMS-2, QUEST, computerized assessment of a broad range of object
manipulation tasks.
Results: Findings demonstrated the feasibility and acceptability of the G-RTP program for use by children
with UE motor impairment
Conclusion: The findings are positive and support a future definitive RCT needed to prove the efficacy and
applicability
