The neuromotor rehabilitative treatment should be joined in the global individualised project. The rehabilitation project is developed by an interdisciplinary. Hence, the clinicians have to promote an appropriate compensation process in the daily living activities with a rapid insertion of new or recovered motor-postural patterns. The model of neuromotor intervention on patients suffering from MS provides a series of important moments: (1) a specific evaluation of the motor and postural behaviour; (2) the identification of targets and consequently the treatment planning; (3) the carrying out of a therapeutic program in different kinds of management; (4) the dynamic monitoring; (5) the experimentation of new therapeutic models and new rehabilitative hypothesis; (6) the placing of a neuro-psycho-motor treatment in a global therapeutic project. Recently we have investigated the performances and the efficiency of a particular therapeutic manoeuvre for the evocation of absent motor components in an experimental group of patients with paretic-atactic features and we have studied the correlations with the results observed in a control group of patients with similar pictures, treated with stretching exercises: the study is described and the first results are reported. Furthermore we have studied the therapeutical use of a stabilometric platform, 'BIOGP', on patients with ataxia. The platform is described and the first clinical experience is reported with the protocol of evaluation.
