Abstract
The main objective of this report was to review and evaluate the effect of balance training using Biodex balance system on postural alignments. The chosen design was a mini literature review with expertsí perspectives. Patients were extracted from several research studies which included spastic diplegic cerebral palsy (SDCP) children within the criteria most likely to be encountered in everyday life at outpatient rehab clinics. The researchers surveyed the published research papers that had satisfied the inclusion- exclusion criteria predetermined by the researchers. Most of research work was designed to compare the study group which received postural control training and therapeutic exercise program whereas the control group received only the therapeutic exercise program. The majority of results revealed significant (p<0.05) improvement in all post treatment mean values; lordotic angle, surface rotation and lateral deviation, in favour of the study group. It has been concluded that balance training using Biodex balance system can be used to decrease postural malalignments in children with spastic diplegia.

Key words: Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Diplegia, Biodex, Balance, Postural Alignment.
