“Fine Manual Control, Coordination and Function of Children with Cerebral Palsy - A Cross Sectional Psychology Based Study”
Main Article Content
A significant factor to childhood persistent impairment is cerebral palsy (CP). The developing of skills in them depends with development of motor performance. Impairments in fine motor skills may hamper daily activities of living. Since there is limited literature on fine motor control, coordination and functional levels this present study will determine level of fine manual control, coordination and function in cerebral palsy children and will aid and promote optimal evaluation of interventions, treatment planning, and patient progress of fine motor development.
To determine level of fine manual control, coordination and function in children diagnosed with cerebral palsy and to determine co-relation between each of the variables.
45 children were included in an observational study. visiting Pediatric Department Physiotherapy, Tertiary care hospital, Belagavi. Fine manual control, coordination and function were evaluated by Bimanual Fine Motor Function, Manual Ability Classification System, and Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency-2.
Study establishes the ranges of fine manual control, coordination and function in children diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The research concludes that there is moderate correlation between Fine manual control and Manual coordination. Also, MACS, Manual coordination and BFMF depends on type of cerebral palsy and tone of muscle.
