Abstract Results of applying the biofeedback method on the ground of electromyogram in rehabilitative treatment of children with cerebral palsy with movement disorders as triceps syndrome was analyzed. The treatment included surgical correction of equinus deformity for 12 children (17 feet) with the triceps syndrome at diplegia and hemiplegic cerebral palsy forms by the original author"s technique (RF patent for invention number 2486873), followed by reduction of muscular balance and motor skill development of adequate functional bio control method (FBU biofeedback EMG). The average patient age was 10.4 ± 2.3 years. The duration of postoperative immobilization in a plaster cast was 6 weeks. Each patient is held from 8 to 15 sessions of the FBU. On average, the number of treatments was 11±2. The results, judged by electromyogram(determined coefficient reciprocity tibialis anterior and gastrocnemius muscles before and after the application of the method on EMG biofeedback FBU), goniometry and multidimensional evaluation functionality tests. They show the high efficiency of the method biofeedback by the correction of motor disorders and recovery support ability of the children lower limbs with cerebral palsy.
