TheraSuit Method®

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

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 the new gold standard pf treatment for children with Cerebral Palsy and other 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 (process similar to a reaction of our muscles to the gravitational forces acting up us for 24 hours).

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.

The gold standard treatment for
neurological disorders

The TheraSuit Method

 

The TheraSuit Method® is intended to

facilitate accelerated rehabilitation to children with neurological disorders by

increasing their range of motion, strengthening muscles, affording them

movements against gravity

and giving them the ability to maintain their posture and function in life.
