What is a TheraSuit
Therasuit and Therasuit Method is a holistic approach for those with neurological disorders. The key element is an intensive strengthening program based on each client’s needs.
Each Therasuit Method intensive strengthening program is aimed at the integration of pathological reflexes and establishing functional movement patterns.
Therasuit is a soft dynamic orthotic device that consists of a vest, shorts, leg pieces, a cap and elastic bands.
All of these pieces work together to load the entire body similar to gravity, causing a reactionary force in the muscles. In turn this changes proprioception, reduces pathological reflexes and restores muscle synergies.
What is a SpiderCage
The SpiderCage works to improve range of motion, muscle strength and joint flexibility, as well as functional skills. The cage can provide support or resistance. As a whole, the TheraSuit Method®, is a holistic approach of treatment for those with neurological disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delays, and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries.
The key to this method is an intensive strengthening program customized for each participant based on his individual needs, strengths, and weaknesses. Specific exercises are chosen aimed at the elimination of pathological reflexes and establishing new, correct, and functional patterns of movements. This intensive program is essential to provide consistency of therapeutic intervention and increased repetition of exercises necessary for significant muscle and neurological retraining and dynamic movements.
