Brain Injury

Brain injury – following trauma, the growth of a tumor, tumor resection, and stroke – occurs after at least some sensorimotor development has occurred.  The presence of a period, or of completion of sensorimotor development distinguishes brain injury from cerebral palsy. Treatment for cerebral palsy involves habilitation – the fostering if optimum sensorimotor development. Treatment […]

Strength Deficit

Weakness is defined as a lack of strength and the inability to generate normal voluntary force in a muscle.[1]  It is a feature of several neuromotor disorders that are characterized by faulty movements, altered muscle tone, and postural and joint malalignments – the latter a causative factor without neural concerns. [2],[3],[4]  Weakness is a also common aspect […]

Balance Deficit

Posture control is fundamental to the efficient performance of all activities of daily living . Difficulty maintaining balance occurs in several neuromotor conditions. Please refer to the following list for a discussion of the condition-specific role of TheraTogs in the management of balance deficit: Ataxia ADHD SMD (commonly known as SPD) Hypotonia Cerebral Palsy Brain […]

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

The Brain Injury Association of America has estimated that in the US alone, there are approximately 1.5 million people who sustain traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year. Many people with TBI show evidence of cerebellar ataxia. How can TheraTogs contribute to rehabilitation of a person with sensorimotor impairment after a TBI? TheraTogs were designed to […]

Stroke

Roughly 80 percent of stroke survivors exhibit hemiparesis, in which one side of their body (“hemi”) has a pronounced weakness (“paresis”). How can TheraTogs contribute to the management of stroke and resulting hemiparesis? TheraTogs were designed to enhance body awareness with compression, and to sustain the postural corrections that a therapist can effect without force […]
