  • Gentle stretching to prevent contracture of arm
  • Identify games and fun tasks that promote strength of arm and hands
  • Repetitive training of the affected arm by using age-appropriate tasks
  • Use of electrical stimulation to gently simulate the nerve signal to the muscle and keep the muscle tissue functional




  • 教育家长们关于正确的抱婴儿以及跟婴儿玩耍的姿势
  • 温和的拉筋以防止手臂的萎缩
  • 鉴定可以增强手臂及手指力量的游戏及有趣的任务
  • 通过适合婴儿年龄的任务以重复练习受影响的手臂
  • 通过用电疗以刺激神经线传送信号去肌肉以及保持肌肉的功能
