TheraSuit is a soft suit that has elastic bands attached to it which are adjusted to help align posture, improve muscle tone, and help improve balance and strength. The suit also helps patients transition from sitting to standing.
Universal Exercise Unit or "Spider Cage"
The Universal Exercise Unit allows a patient to be suspended in the middle of a cage, with support provided by bungee cords that attach to a belt worn by the patient. By using this exercise unit, gravitational forces are removed and the patient can practice skills to improve balance, coordination, and function with a sense of security. This treatment is successfully used throughout Europe and is a widely sought after form of treatment.
