Backgrouna and Aim : Children with cerebral palsy have often movement and postural disorders. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of new neoprene dynamic orthosis on balance in children with cerebral palsy.

  

Materials and Methods : This study is quazi experimental. Five children with cerebral palsy (spastic diplegia) with mean age of 9/6± 3.78 years old participated in this study. The degree of knee extension was measured using electrogoniometer. Center of Pressure(COP) displacement in anterior/posterior and medial/lateral planes and functional balance were also measured using kistler forceplate (BA, Kistler- Switzerland 9286) and berg test in two occasions, before and after wearing neoprene orthosis in a period of six weeks. Wilcoxon test was used for comparing data before and after 6 weeks.

  

Results : There was statistically significant difference in right knee extension before and after wearing orthosis (p<0/05). The result of this study show no statistically significant in COP parameters. However, functional balance of children with CP shows significant improvement using neoprene orthosis.

  

Conclusion : New neoprene orthosis can be effective in knee biomechanical alignment as well as functional balance
