Objective: The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of taping on the hand functions in spastic hemiplegic children. Study Design: Randomized controlled trial. Study participants and setting: Fourteen children were divided into two groups of equal numbers. Group A (Control group) received especially designed therapeutic exercise program, Group B (Study group) received especially designed therapeutic exercise program in addition to application of taping. Material and Methods: Both groups were evaluated for their hand functions prior and after a course of 3 months-training program specified for each group using the Peabody Developmental Motor Scale-2 (PDMS-2).
