Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of patterned sensory enhancement(PSE) music on the upper limb function of children with spastic cerebral palsy. Method: A total of 10 children recruited from a rehabilitation welfare center participated in this study. While performing five tasks including shoulder flexion, elbow extension, forearm supination, wrist extension, and gripping, PSE music was played for the subjects. Results: The results showed that a significantly increased range of motion and grip strength were found in all subjects with the immediate use of PSE music(p<05), and additional functions were promoted in the complex form of the music. Conclusion: This study implies that the complexity of musical elements in PSE music for upper limb motion immediately leads to significant improvement in ROM and grip strength by providing sufficient temporal, spatial, and dynamic information for expected motor functions.
