II. How does the TherSuit® works? 

TheraSuit®, thanks to its construction and improvements creates a breathable soft dynamic orthotic. Its major goal is to improve and change proprioception (pressure from the joints, ligaments, muscles), reduce patient's pathological reflexes, restore physiological muscle synergies (proper patterns of movement) and load the entire body with weight (process similar to a reaction of our muscles to the gravitational forces acting up us for 24 hours). All of the above normalizes afferent vestibulo-proprioceptive input (information arriving to the  vestibular system). The vestibular system is a very important center. It processes, integrates and sends back all the information that arrives from muscles, joints, tendons etc. It influences muscle tone, balance and the position of the body in space.

The more correct proprioception from the joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, joint's capsule etc., the more correct alignment. The vicious cycle (picture 1)  can be interrupted and incorrect information is replaced by " new" correct information (picture 2). A patient (child) diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and other neuro-motor disorders requires hundreds of repetitions of any particular movement. We believe that as individuals, we all have a "magic" number. For example: a baby that is trying to push-off the floor will need to repeat this movement a  few hundred times in order to master it. Another one may need either more or less repetitions to learn the same skill. For the Cerebral Palsied child however, this fairly low "magic" number grows to a thousand or more repetitions to learn and master new skills. TheraSuit worn over a prolonged time will correct proprioception and accelerate the progress. Thanks to the TheraSuit and intensive functional strengthening program the skills practiced will become more fluent and require less and less effort. Therefore, TheraSuit  facilitates the development of new gross and fine motor skills like sitting, standing, walking.










TheraSuit is intendent to facilitate rehabilitation of children with neurological disorders which result in decreased range of motion, muscle weakness, difficulties with movement against gravity, maintaining posture and other motor activities impairements.

All the mentioned above elements of the suit are
connected with each other through a system of
