In this case study following short-term treatment with Timocco a 5-year-old child with Developmental Coordination Disorder was found to have increased motivation to cope with motor and cognitive challenges, and encouraged the child to attempt new experiences outside the virtual environment in daily functions.
Improvements were observed in the patient’s ability to maintain posture and related motor skills. The results of the study indicated improvement in the child’s ability to maintain static positions over time, as well as the lessening of motor fatigue.
