The Bobath concept is still developing, but it already has its principles. They include suppression or elimination of reflective tonic activity leading to normalization of muscle tonus and helping activate movement reactions according to the sequence of their development (spontaneous movements, head control, straightening reactions, making turns, etc.). In addition to neuromuscular correction and treatment, the Bobath concept includes development of self-service skills and raising a child in family environment.
