Many families with CP children end up impoverished due to the illness and eventually stop seeking treatment, leaving the child disabled for life. The above situation also creates social problems such as high levels of poverty, high rate of divorce and high rate of abandonment of CP children, causing thousands living as orphans in state welfare homes. Existing rehabilitation methods for CP are mostly manual and depend largely on the skill and experience of therapists to produce results. Unfortunately, professionally trained CP therapists in China are scarce resources and treatment outcomes are hard to replicate under existing methods, often making treatment inaccessible to many. The large number of CP sufferers in China ( est. over 6 million) further compounds the above problems, creating a pressing need to discover more effective CP treatments/ rehabilitation methods and ensuring higher accessibility to these medical services.
