Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the requirements for assistive technology (AT) devices for children with cerebral palsy (CP) in Malaysia. It also presents how prior and current research on AT devices can help children with CP become more self-reliant in their daily lives. This research was conducted using databases such as Google Scholar, Science Direct, the official portal of the Ministry of Health Malaysia, as well as the Cerebral Palsy Research Network, Nemours KidsHealth, CerebralPalsy.org, United Cerebral Palsy, and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Articles from 2001 to 2020 were reviewed, and only 46 sources out of 80 were reliable.
