Objective: to determine the specific features of rehabilitation potential in adult patients with cerebral palsy (CP). Material and Methods. Fifty patients with a confirmed diagnosis of cerebral palsy established in childhood were studied. Level of development of gross motor skills according to GMFCS classification was evaluated in all patients; functions were assessed using the International Classification of Functioning (ICF, version 2.1a, clinical form). Results: In patients with level 2 GMFCS, dysfunctions of muscle tone, muscle strength, implementation and capacity for raising and transferring objects of moderate and severe degree (p<0.05) were more common. The frequency of restricted implementation of precise manual movements is comparable in patients with GMFCS levels 1 and 2 Restricted non- assisted walking was significantly more common in patients with 2nd functional level. The moderately significant positive impact of personal mobility assistive products is more common among level 2 patients, while the importance of communication tools was greater for level 1 GMFCS patients. Conclusion. In adult patients with cerebral palsy it is necessary to assess the rehabilitation potential using ICF. Indicators of activity and participation are of key importance to the rehabilitation potential of adult cerebral palsy patients and should be considered in terms of the possibility of full or partial recovery to a level at which the performance of a certain task will meet the needs of the patient.
