TheraSuit® Method Intensive Pediatric Therapy Miami, FL
At KidsCare Therapy Center, we offer advanced pediatric rehab treatments. The TheraSuit® Method Intensive Program (TMIP) is an intensive individualized therapy program that accelerates functional progress. This program includes the use of a TheraSuit® and a Universal Exercise Unit (UEU). TheraSuit® is a soft canvas suit with bungee-like cords attached. It’s uniquely designed to strengthen and retrain a child’s muscles and neurological responses.
The UEU, is a cage equipped with long bungee cords that a child uses, while belted in, to practice certain movements and exercises that allow for a range of motions that the TheraSuit® doesn’t allow. Combining both methods allows a patient to do exercises and intensive therapies that would normally take multiple therapists to achieve. The principle of the UEU is for the child to perform independent movement by eliminating gravitational forces through suspension of the body part being exercised.
