Researchers Tests Device That Helps Infants With Cerebral Palsy Crawl

Researchers at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, in collaboration with colleagues at Virginia Commonwealth University, want to know if infants with cerebral palsy can learn to use a skateboard-like robotic device that enables locomotion. In addition, they are evaluating whether moving independently with assistance of the device will lead to improvements in problem-solving, spatial relationships, social interaction and hand-eye coordination for infants in the study.
