Videos and visuals are everywhere, and the TheraTogs community is no exception
It’s understandable – TheraTogs’ beneficial effects are often so visually compelling there’s an immediate instinct to grab the cell camera and share a quick video with the grandparents, or use the clinic’s iPad to capture improved outcomes.
We’ve seen a number of “oh, wow!” moments over the years, and we’re happy to share them with you here.
TheraTogs in Action
Geno is 67 years old, 8 months post-stroke (CVA). Before TheraTogs, he walks haltingly with a quad cane. He shows immediate improvement from first wearing of TheraTogs and walks without his cane. Six weeks later, he shows significant gains in balance, mobility, and confidence. “Geno just took off like a rocket!” noted Beverly Cusick, TheraTogs inventor.
Sarah is 5 years old with cerebellar ataxia, which presents with staggering gait and lack of body control. In her first wearing of TheraTogs, she immediately gains greater control of her gait, her body movement and posture, and her hands and arms. Sarah says: “Now I don’t fall down any more, Mommy.”
Diane Gabanyic, OTR/L, wanted to demonstrate to her caregivers why she often recommends TheraTogs for her clients. Since a video is worth a million words, she put together this compilation of clinical footage to make the case. Gabanyic is the Director of Therapy Services for the Carolina Therapy Services Cooperative, Inc. of Rock Hill, SC.
Dr. Carole B. Lewis (PT, DPT, GTC, GCS, MSG, MPA, PhD, FAPTA) reviews TheraTogs research in a clip from the Relevant Research series, sponsored by Great Seminars Online.
