In Paralympic sport, success often depends on an athletes’ ability to create body positions and movement patterns that allow them to execute sport specific techniques better than their competitors. If an athlete’s movement quality is improved the opportunity to maximise technical performance increases. Where an impairment such as cerebral palsy exists, achieving optimal movement patterns can become an even greater challenge for the athlete and their coach.
