The TheraSuit Method® is a gold standard treatment for adults with Cerebral Palsy and other neurological disorders in Australia & the world. Our experienced staff have been using the TheraSuit for neurological rehabilitation for many years.
The TheraSuit Method® is based on an intensive and specific exercise program. It accelerates the elimination of pathological reflexes and establishes new, correct and functional patterns of movements.
The TheraSuit Method® is intended to facilitate accelerated rehabilitation for teenagers and adults with cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders by increasing their range of motion, strengthening muscles and affording them movements against gravity to allow them the ability to maintain their posture and function in life.
TheraSuit is the gold standard treatment for 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. The Therasuit is a soft and dynamic support system with hooks and elastic bands that align the body as close to neurotypical as possible. The bands assist in supporting weak muscles and normalizing muscle tone.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.
