TheraSuit Method® - Centre Of Movement Gold Coast Australia

TheraSuit Method

The TheraSuit Method® is the new gold standard of treatment for children with Cerebral Palsy and other neurological disorders in Australia & the world.

Our Centre is located on the Gold Coast and has been working with the Therasuit Method in Australia for many years.

The TheraSuit Method® is based on an intensive and specific exercise program. Its accelerates the elimination of pathological reflexes and establishes new, correct and functional patterns of movements.

The TheraSuit Method® is intended to facilitate accelerated rehabilitation to children with cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders by increasing their range of motion, strengthening muscles and affording them movements against gravity to allow them the ability to maintain their posture and function in life. 

TheraSuit Method

The gold standard treatment for neurological disorders

The major goal of using the TheraSuit Method® is to improve and change proprioception (pressure from the joints, ligaments, muscles), reduce  pathological reflexes, restore physiological muscle synergies (proper patterns of movement) and load the entire body with weight. The Therasuit is a soft and dynamic support system with hooks and elastic bands that align the child’s body as close to neurotypical as possible. The bands assist in supporting weak muscles and normalizing muscle tone.The TheraSuit Method® was designed by physical therapists Richard and Izabela Kosciely when their child was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and they felt that traditional therapy was not meeting their child’s needs. The suit was developed from the original Penguin suit used in Russia’s space program to counteract the harmful effects of weightlessness on the body after returning from long periods in space.
