CP is defined as a group of permanent disorders in the development of movement and posture in the developing fetus or baby's brain, causing activity limitation and non-progressive disorders.
CP is the most common cause of lifelong physical disability in childhood in many countries and children with CP and their families need support.
The limited ability of movement not only increases the health problems of these children but also increases the risks of secondary diseases such as obesity, metabolic syndrome and skeletal deformities. Due to the limited impact of the programs implemented in rehabilitation centers, most children with CP do not receive adequate treatment; because of the physical activities that take place in these centers, children can exercise in a limited time and place.
The CPlayer project consists of a plug-and-play device with complementary apps that will provide remote monitoring and rehabilitation (telerehabilitation, virtual-rehabilitation) of children with lifelong CP. While playing games, children will exercise and follow a treatment plan.
