This article is from Journal of Physical Therapy Science, volume 26.AbstractPurpose The aim of the present study was to describe the results of transcranial direct current stimulation combined with treadmill training in a child with delayed neuro-psychomotor development. Subject and Methods Transcranial direct current stimulation intensity: 1 mA was applied over the primary motor cortex for 20 minutes during simultaneous treadmill training 2.5 km-h in ten sessions. Results Clinically significant improvement was found in motor development fine motor subscale, 23 to 25; gross motor subscale, 32 to 41. Reductions in mean oscillation of the center of pressure were found in the anteroposterior 239.2 to 146.5 mm and mediolateral 177.4 to 149.2 mm directions. Increases occurred in cadence 106 to 123 steps-minute, step length 0.16 to 0.23 m, step width 0.09 to 0.14 m and gait velocity with support 0.3 to 0.7 m-s. Conclusion After treatment, the child was able to initiate the standing position for the first time and walk without support.
