A child's occupation is play and school. The following list describes some of the problem areas that can affect a child's ability to play or participate at school:
SKY's intensive physical therapy program is based on the European approach, which includes specific treatment techniques involving the Therasuit™ and Universal Exercise Unit (UEU). Our experienced therapists combine their knowledge and expertise in many treatment techniques (NDT, SI, MFR, E-stim) with the Therasuit™ method to complement all aspects of the program.
A variety of diagnosis can benefit from intensive therapy including:
The program includes:
The AlterG uses technology developed at NASA to apply a comfortable and uniform lifting force to the body. Integrated into a high tech treadmill. AlterG's technology offers precise body weight reduction using air pressure as the lifting force. Essentially, the individual is "walking on air" so their limbs feel lighter, moving with greater ease. As a result, they are able to sustain walking or running for longer periods, allowing the opportunity to exercise without the stress imposed by gravity. The AlterG incorporates video monitoring with a 3-camera placement so immediate feedback is given to the user to make self-correction.
By reducing the impact of gravity, children with a variety of diagnoses have the opportunity to practice motor patterns for walking with greater ease. They are now able to make self-corrections and further practice improved patterns repetitively for motor learning and neuroplastic changes in the brain to occur. This type of mass practice is difficult to achieve on a traditional treadmill as the children become frustrated and often are physically unable to consistently maintain the intense level of focused walking that we are asking of them. Overall, anti-gravity treadmill training helps to improve endurance, build strength, improve motor control, gait biomechanics, increased body awareness, and increase overall levels of fitness. Physical improvements have correlated with improved self-esteem and confidence.
