How To Choose a TheraTogs System

TheraTogs are assembled in different combinations of components to address similar needs. In general, follow these steps to choose the appropriate TheraTogs for your individual client(s):

Step One: Evaluate your client

Identify rehab management objectives that TheraTogs can be expected to effectively address. Start with any core strength or postural alignment issues, and work outward to the limbs. If the client’s gait is involved, identify any need for foot positioning or orthotic assistance. TheraTogs’ improvements to gait patterns are best achieved when working with the wearer on a flat surface.

Step Two: Measure and record baseline abilities and movement ranges

Use an appropriate standard test (PEDI, GMFM, WeeFIM, etc.) to quantify current metrics, and set rehab objectives accordingly.

Step Three: Refine your options

Determine the appropriate TheraTogs system based on your client’s indication(s) and your rehab objectives. You can use one of the Management algorithms (indications or applications) offered below for more detailed information.
