Brief Summary:
The aim of the study is to determine the feasibility of the portable version of the YouGrabber® system in children with central motor disorders.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cerebral Palsy Stroke Traumatic Brain Injury Meningomyelocele Central Nervous System Diseases Device: YouGrabber Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In a feasibility trial with the portable version of the YouGrabber® system it will be determined if the technique and equipment are ready to be used in a home setting where children with central motor disorders train with assistance of caregivers but without a therapist. Furthermore, it will be examined if children and adolescents with central motor disorders accept this home-based system and if they are motivated for using it.
