Effectiveness of the Therasuit Method
This study is part of a multi-site ongoing study and was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of an intensive exercise program (TheraSuit Method®) using a Soft Dynamic Proprioceptive Orthotic (TheraSuit®) on children with cerebral palsy by measuring changes which occurred after participating in a treatment session at the Pediatric Fitness Center, Keego Harbor, Michigan. The primary goal of the outcome study was the assessment of functional skills which have the most influence on the quality of life.
Design: Ongoing study using a group pre-test/post-test design. A four-level diagnostic algorithm has been designed for the complex evaluation of all participants. It includes the preliminary selection, obtaining the initial data necessary to develop the individual exercise program, collection of changes during and after the program and preparation of the individual home exercise program.
