Pediatric Rehabilitation

TheraSuit® Method for Children

The TheraSuit® Method Intensive Program (TMIP) is a new type of therapy we use to help children who have neurological conditions and disorders. Our physical therapists have advanced training using this therapy method which enables a child to improve their mobility more quickly compared to traditional pediatric rehabilitation therapies.

Customized Exercise Therapy

This program uses a TheraSuit® and a Universal Exercise Unit (UEU). Your child's therapist creates a customized, exercise therapy plan to help your child increase functionality over a short period of time. The Therasuit® is a soft brace made up of bungee-like cords. It’s uniquely designed to strengthen and retrain a child’s muscles and neurological responses.

Universal Exercise Unit

The Universal Exercise Unit is a cage equipped with long bungee cords that a child uses, while belted in, to practice certain movements and exercises that allow for a range of motions that the TheraSuit® doesn’t allow. Combining both methods allows a patient to do exercises and intensive therapies that would normally take multiple therapists to achieve.
