The LEONARDO method can be used in a rehabilitation program to gradually restore proprioception through various exercises.

The board can be attached to hinges, half-spheres or spherical fittings through a series of holes and magnetized pins, which makes it possible to use it for several proprioception exercise.

The positional feedback  systems are especially useful as assessment and rehabilitation tools. They allow to monitor and amplify movements in order to provide a quick assessment of asymmetries, compensations and changes in patient performance.

WHAT'S THE MEANING OF MOTOR LEARNING?

The term motor learning defines the ability to learn or modify motor skills in a relatively permanent way, by means of a complex perceptual - motor - cognitive process that leads to the individual’s increased performance as a result of their practice and interaction with the environment (Magill, 1980; Woollacott & Shumway-Cook, 1994; Schmidt & Lee, 2005).

Rehabilitation is actually a true motor re-learning process (Perfetti, 1979; Carr & Shepherd, 1987) aimed at  acquiring new skills and recovering motor capabilities that were lost by the individual suffering from any conditions.

IMPORTANCE OF FEEDBACK IN THE MOTOR LEARNING

An essential condition for learning is the existence of feedback to return intrinsic or extrinsic information on the outcome and result from one’s motor response (Adams, 1987; Winstein, 1991).

This proves to be true both  upon developing a movement pattern and when matching the motion produced with its correct reference. The performance we require from the patient must be gradual and suited to their capabilities, so as to generate continual improvement and progressive adjustment in the physician’s requests. Depending on the source originating the sensory feedback, we can talk of intrinsic feedback and augmented feedback or extrinsic feedback (Winstein, 1987).

Extrinsic feedback is given by information coming from an external source to the individual who is performing the movement and that information, in turn, increases and amplifies the intrinsic feedback. This type of information is always linked to how movement is executed or to particular aspects of it that the individual cannot or is unable to be aware of. It can be provided  through various types of channels having different sources and produced in different variations. It is now widely recognized that such information has a key role in providing acknowledgment as to whether the movement is correct and reinforcing learning as a result (Schmidt & Lee, 2005 Wulf, 2007; Roelfsema et al., 2010).
