At All About Kids Rehab, we provide physiotherapy intensives for kids with the TheraSuit®. We use this unique rehabilitation device in physiotherapy to support physical and neurological rehabilitation. The TheraSuit® is a soft, breathable, dynamic orthotic suit with bungee-like cords attached. Patients wear this suit for support while a therapist leads them through guided exercises designed to strengthen and target specific muscular areas of concern.
Physiotherapy intensives often take place in the Universal Exercise Unit (UEU/Spider Cage) for stabilization of pulleys and bungees. This is a customizable therapy designed for your specific needs!
We are proud to provide our structured TheraSuit® Method Intensive Program. This is 3-4 weeks of intensive 3-hour physiotherapy, 5 days/week. To learn more, call our clinic today!
The endless possibilities for exercise set up in the Universal Exercise Unit (or Spider Cage) make it so easy to meet our patient’s specific movement goals!
The TheraSuit® Method Intensive program is a neurofunctional therapy program that consists of the use of the TheraSuit® and the UEU/Spider Cage. (See definitions below.) The combined use of this equipment helps children (and now adults) to develop new motor patterns and correct maladaptive patterns of movement. This is a neurofunctional program that consists of 3-4 weeks of intensive 3-hour physiotherapy, 5 days/week.

Universal Exercise Unit (Spider Cage): A supportive structure for exercises that incorporates bungees and pulleys. The UEU, often referred to as the Spider Cage, incorporates the use of a pulley system and bungees. Strengthening in the pulley system helps to target specific muscles groups and isolate weaker muscles. The use of the bungee suspensions allows the therapist to ensure the patient is well-aligned while performing functional activities while keeping the therapist’s hands free to assist in the activity.
