Introduction: Existent research indicates that physical activity can not only improve physical and mental status of epileptic patients, but can also reduce the frequency of seizures. Therefore, the present study seeks to determine the effect of physical activity on the occurrence of seizures during, immediately after and 24 hours after those exercises. It can, consequently, remove these patients’ fear of seizures during and after physical exercises. Such fear naturally impedes engagement in physical activities. Methodology: This semi-experimental research was carried out on 10 general epileptic children whose age ranged between 8 to 14 years (mean=10 years old) and who were all male. The test was performed according to Nakkenet al.’s (1997) protocol designed as A-B-A. In stage A, the child would sit on a stationary bike with open eyes without making any movement. In stage B, the child would be pedaling for about 10 minutes before exhaustion. The work load would rise in accordance with the subject’s potential heart beats. All throughout the test performance, an electroencephalographic device would record brain electric flows. Results: The patient experienced no seizure during the physical activity or after that. An insignificant increase was also observed in the recorded electric flows during the exercise compared to those recorded before the exercise. Discussion: Physical activity has no negative effect on the occurrence of seizure among epileptic children. These children can do physical exercises as normal children do.
