It is a widely recognized approach worldwide. Its assumptions and techniques are not controversial and are commonly accepted. It is an approach to neurological rehabilitation started by the Bobaths couple in the 1940s. It promotes the child's general neurodevelopment so that they can live independently and use their abilities as long as their damage to the parts of the brain allows.
The Bobath concept proves particularly useful in baby and children therapy as it can be easily integrated with their daily activities and does not disturb the interaction between the mother and child. Correct handling, feeding, carrying or playing with the child is a natural way to record movement patterns supported by a physiotherapist. Correctly trained parents or carers continue therapy at home.
