Abstract

A rehabilitation program, having as its central component a sensorimotor integration procedure, was applied to 36 geriatric patients after hip fracture or CVA. The sensorimotor integration was gradually carried out in a developmental sequence from a lying down position to a fully erect position. Results were preliminarily evaluated by pre- and post- treatment figure drawings, and by ADL ratings. Significant changes were obtained in both measures. Qualitative changes in figure drawings point to specific effects of the sensorimotor integration therapy. A detailed theoretical rationale is provided for the implementation of SI therapy with patients suffering from CVA or hip fracture.
