The TheraSuit is a soft proprioceptive dynamic orthosis (suit) designed to load the body with forces similar to those of gravity. The components of the suit are connected to each other by elastic bands. The distribution of the stretches is adjusted depending on the patient’s problem and condition, so as to support the function of selected muscle groups or introduce postural correction. The TheraSuit® is a safe and effective rehabilitation device that has been developed together with an intensive exercise programme to accelerate a child’s progress. The use of the THERASUIT® suit during exercise improves deep sensation, reduces pathological movement patterns and influences the correct positioning of the patient’s body.  Through TheraSuit® we provide external stabilisation of the body and support for weakened muscles. The therapy is particularly recommended for children with reduced muscle tone – hypotonia. The use of the suits during exercise increases muscle strength and endurance and improves postrural control.

The effects of using the TheraSuit rehabilitation costume:

  • Improves proprioception
  • Reduces pathological reflexes
  • Restores correct posture and movement pattern
  • Provides external stabilisation of the body and supports weakened muscles
  • Corrects correct positioning of body parts
  • Affects the vagus system (balance system)
  • Stimulates the brain and improves the function of the Central Nervous System
  • Provides tactile and sensory stimulation
  • Improves speaking fluency and pronunciation
  • Loads the child’s body with forces similar to those of gravity

Indications for THERA SUIT® therapy:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Decreased muscle tone – hypotonia
  • Stroke
  • Delays in motor development
  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Spinal hernia
  • Diseases of the neuromuscular system
  • Genetic defects
