Suit therapy

Thera Suit Therapy is based on using an adapted cosmonaut suit called THERA. The Thera methodology was specifically developed to assist patients suffering from locomotor dysfunctions resulted from such diseases as Infantile Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Cord Damage, various forms of brain trauma, post -accident injuries, Parkinson Disease.

WHAT IS THERA SUIT?

The TheraSuit is a modification of the Space Suit originally designed by the Soviet Space Program. The Suit is comprised of a cap, vest, shorts, knee pads, and specially adapted shoes that are connected to each other through a system of adjustable straps and elastic bands.

It aligns the body, normalizes muscle tone, improves proprioception and reduces pathological reflexes.
The suit is just a tool and it is only effective in combination with the appropriate medical knowledge in the field of rehabilitation as well as Thera methodology that was specifically developed for this purpose.

WHAT CAN THE EQUIPMENT DO?

The Thera Suit helps accelerate progress in motor skills. Intensive therapy can provide strengthening, flexibility, increased endurance and enhanced functional skills. Many patients acquire skills such as rolling, crawling, sitting, and/ or walking, which they have never been able to do prior to participating in this type of physical therapy program.

The Thera Suit also serves as a corrective exo- skeleton that supports the body in anatomically correct positions. The Thera Suit Method results in a certain normalization of the locomotive and motor actions of the patientís trunk and lower limbs.
