About

Our study is a randomized controlled study and the subjects included in the study will be divided into three groups as virtual reality training, biofeedback training, and conventional rehabilitation.

Full description

We have 3 purposes: Determine the feasibility of virtual reality training in children with neuromuscular disease. To determine the effect of virtual reality, biofeedback training, and conventional rehabilitation on functional levels and balances of children with neuromuscular disease. To compare the motivation of children with neuromuscular disease to virtual reality, biofeedback training, and conventional rehabilitation.
