Interactive computer environments may be a good way to make motor practice more fun and motivating for children with sensorimotor disorders. However, appropriate computer environments that could be used for this purpose need to be systematically tested in rehabilitation settings in order to evaluate their impact on motor aspects as well as on motivation and activity levels. This abstract describes pilot data from an ongoing intervention study involving children diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The interactive environment used is the Sony's EyeToy system for PlayStation2. The intervention is evaluated through interviews as well as with activity monitoring and motor assessments, including 3D motion analysis. Here we will report pilot data based on the interviews.
