Neuromuskuläre Erkrankungen

  • Oded Bar-Or


Das Kind mit CP ist in seiner körperlichen Leistung eingeschränkt, unabhangig davon ob es sich um spastische, athetotische oder ataktische Formen handelt. Im allgemeinen ist das spastische Kind vorwiegend im Kraft- und Ausdauerbereich behindert. Dagegen ist seine Feinkoordination besser als beim athetotischen Kind, das wiederum Kraftleistungen vergleichsweise gut erbringen und längere Strecken gehend zurücklegen kann [33]. Am ausgeprägtesten fällt entsprechend die Behinderung bei Kindern mit spastisch-athetotischen Mischformen aus.
