Rehabilitation is an essential component of managing cerebral palsy, a group of neurological disorders that affect movement and posture. The primary goal of rehabilitation in cerebral palsy is to maximize the individual's functional abilities and independence, enabling them to participate in daily activities and achieve their full potential. Rehabilitation interventions may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and assistive technology. These interventions aim to improve muscle strength and flexibility, motor coordination, communication, and cognitive skills. Rehabilitation programs should be tailored to the individual's specific needs, taking into account their age, severity of the condition, and overall health status. Early intervention and ongoing rehabilitation can have a significant impact on the long-term outcomes of individuals with cerebral palsy, improving their quality of life and reducing the risk of complications associated with the condition.
Currently, I am deepening my understanding of the underlying mechanisms of motor disorders in cerebral palsy (CP). My ultimate goal is to develop innovative assistive technologies that can significantly enhance the rehabilitation process for individuals with CP. In order to achieve this goal, I am actively seeking potential collaborators who share my research interests and passion for improving the lives of individuals with CP.
