Highlights

  • In recent years virtual reality (VR) has been used alone and as an adjunct intervention in the treatment of patients with cerebral palsy (CP).

  • VR plus conventional rehabilitation can improve upper limb function and lower limb strength in patients with CP.

  • VR alone is no better than other treatments to improve upper and lower limb function in patients with CP.

  • VR alone can improve postural control, balance, and lower limb function in patients with CP.

  • Further research is needed to better define the effectiveness of VR in patients with CP.
