Motor design retraining
Kinetic design is the function of the brain by which the child conceives a function in order to plan an activity before performing it. There are four important elements to a successful motor design:
- the idea of movement must first be designed,
- then to have the knowledge of the movement,
- then organize the sequence of kinetic action and
- finally, to have a smooth sequence of kinetic patterns in the new activity.
It should be emphasized that in an activity, the brain must constantly adapt to the information it receives from the periphery and respond with kinetic adaptations to the constantly new conditions that are created.
The whole process of retraining requires the cooperation of a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, psychologist, etc.
