As a therapeutic approach based on empirical evidence, the Bobath concept is aimed at children, adolescents, and adults with congenital or acquired cerebral movement disorders, developmental delays, sensomotoric disorders, and neuromuscular diseases.

At the moment, the treatment of cerebral movement disorders required the use of the so-called neurophysiological Bobath and Vojta methods that are prescribed as remedy. The effectiveness of these concepts has not yet been proven sufficiently. More current approaches based on evidence regarding motor skill development emphasize the repetitive training of activities relevant for everyday life, an approach that is increasingly used in modern neurorehabilitation.
