ItemCapítulo de livroFine motor performance of children with ataxic cerebral palsy during tracing activity: A case report(2014-10-01) Machado, Maraísa Fonseca [UNESP]; Araújo, Rita de Cássia Tibério [UNESP]; Braccialli, Lígia Maria Presumido [UNESP]; Universidade Estadual Paulista (Unesp)The aim of this study was to test the effect of weight bracelet and adapted pen on fine motor graphic activity performance. Two patients with a diagnosis of ataxic cerebral palsy from the Occupational Therapy service participated in the study. The effect of these adaptations was tested during tracing activities on a tablet, with records related to time, jerk, pressure and strokes. The data represent four experimental situations: a) without adaptation, b) with weight bracelet, c) with weight bracelet and weight on an adapted pen, and d) with weight on an adapted pen. Participant P1 showed less tremor and execution time in situation d, and less stroke and pressure in situation c. Participant P2 had a shorter execution time, tremor and pen force in situation d, and less stroke incidence in situation c. This study suggests that the prescription of weight using weight bracelet in addition to weight on an adapted a pen to cerebral palsy patients would be suitable to perform graphic tasks with higher quality. ItemCapítulo de livroThe use of weight bracelet in individuals with encephalopathy(2014-10-01) Audi, Mauro; Sankako, Andréia Naomi [UNESP]; Braccialli, Lígia Maria Presumido [UNESP]; Marilia University; Universidade Estadual Paulista (Unesp)This study aimed to analyze the function of upper limbs, in the reach movement to a target, with and without a weight bracelet, in individuals with encephalopathy who had involuntary movements of upper limbs. 7 individuals with diagnosis of encephalopathy who had involuntary movements, 2 females, 5 males, aged 21 to 38 years (mean = 26) participated in this study. Significant statistical differences were found (p = 0.03) to the obtained results of the distance gone through upper limb and to straightness index values (p = 0.03), comparing the obtained results with and without weight bracelet. The use of weight bracelet on the wrist influenced the values of the traveled distance and the straightness index during the reach movement to a target, which were lesser when compared to the movement without weight bracelet. Results demonstrated a better motor performance of upper limbs from participants of this study with weight bracelet.
