The goal of this study is to determine the efficacy of task related circuit training on functional mobility and balance in children with spastic diplegic type of cerebral palsy.


This was an experimental study of 30 children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy having a GMFM level of I or II. All the subjects were enrolled in an identical subgroup and divided into two equal groups (15 patient in each group) one experimental and another control group. Experimental group did task oriented circuit training while control group performed conventional exercise program.

We assessed the Functional mobility of lower extremity and balance of all patients by Timed Up and Go test and Pediatric balance scale respectively.


Result shows that both the groups improved significantly but task oriented circuit training group improved more than the conventional training group.


This study suggests that task oriented circuit training is more effective as compared to the conventional training for the functional mobility and balance in spastic diplegic cerebral palsy children.
