Josip Glavić*, Stela Rutović, Nikolina Kristić-Cvitanović, Petra Burić and Ana Petrović

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common lifelong disability affecting motor development in children. Hemiplegic CP is the most common syndrome in children born at term. Numerous rehabilitation approaches have been reported in children with CP. Recent studies have shown that robot-assisted training can complement conventional therapies in children with cerebral palsy. In this study we present a case of an 18 year old girl with spastic hemiparesis as a form of cerebral palsy, who showed significant recovery after intensive technology-enhanced physical rehabilitation using Armeo spring system.
