Abstract

This paper reviews on the usage of robotic technology for lower limbs therapy of children with cerebral palsy (CP). CP children require regular therapy such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy. It was found that there is a growing trend of using robotic technology to assist in this therapy session. Several of these robotic-assisted have shown positive result in the rehabilitation process. The methods and robotics equipment that is found to have positive outcome in rehabilitation process are being highlighted in this paper. It is expected that the information gathered in this paper will be used to farther develop the robotic-assisted technology for lower limbs rehabilitation process of CP children.
