The NeuroSuit is one of the pillars of our three-week intensive therapy program. The NeuroSuit is worn for two-hour periods, and can be used either by qualified physio or occupational therapists. It is made of a vest, shorts, knee and elbow pads, gloves, shoe attachments and a hat if necessary. Bungee type cords interlock all of these pieces. These cords assist with proper alignment of the body and essentially frame the body from the outside (external skeleton).
Besides simultaneously assisting the client’s body to be in correct alignment, the bungee cords provide a comforting compression to the joints and distribute vertical weight bearing throughout the body. This sends strong messages to and from the client’s brain and central nervous system, which increases body awareness, and leads to improved motor planning. Muscle is built at a faster pace while learning is amplified to the central nervous system.
See faster results towards goals of improved motor skills from performing specific exercise and functional activities while in the NeuroSuit. This is carried over into daily life even when not in the NeuroSuit.
