Abstract: 

Purpose: Hand disability is a characteristic problem in hemiplegic cerebral palsy children which leads to limitation in performance of their daily living and play activities. The aim of this work is to study the effect of kinesio taping (KT) on improvement of hand function in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.
Design: Experimental study (randomized controlled trial).
Subjects: Thirty hemiplegic cerebral palsy children (8–12 years) were randomized to two equal groups, study group and control group.
Procedure: Measurements of both total score for quality of upper extremity skill test (QUEST) and wrist extension range of motion (ROM) were applied for both groups before and after 3 months of the treatment. Control group received traditional physical therapy program, while the study group received the same program in addition to KT.
Results: Both total QUEST score and wrist ROM were significantly improved in both control and study groups in favor of the study group (P < 0.05).
Conclusion: KT is a good therapeutic adjunctive therapy for hand function in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.
