AIMS: This study was performed to Assess the efficacy of adeli suit therapy (AST) in 4-8 year old children with spastic CP with normal intelligence quota (IQ).
METHODS: This is a quasi-experimental and interventional study performed on 20 CP spastic 4-8 year old children who acquired the entrance qualification for intervention. The clinical tests were Wechsler intelligence scale for IQ evaluating and GMFM-66 (Gross Motor Function Measure) for evaluating gross motor performance.
RESULTS:There were significant difference in gross motor functional abilities after using AST (p<0.01). Evaluation each of the functional levels before and after the intervention showed that the best result of using AST seen on children at IV level. But evaluation comparing of motor performance levels showed no significant difference (p>0.1).
CONCLUSION: AST is a new and effective approach in children with CP and it was caused meaningful improvement in gross motor function of CP children and this approach is useful for all CP children in different levels of motor function.
