- Young, ambulatory children with functional alignment and mobility issues incident to cerebral palsy and other CNS dysfunctions.
- Adults with stroke, traumatic brain injury, Multiple Sclerosis, and other adult-onset CNS dysfunctions.
The Full Body System is available in a full range of sizes, and is the modality of choice to address a variety of neuromotor, postural, mobility, and balance issues.
The Full Body System wraps the torso and extremities in a Velcro-sensitive “strapping field” that allows the clinician to attach straps that can improve postural alignment and stability. The Full Body System addresses the greatest variety of functional alignment and movement issues, as well as related issues in the extremities proximal to the wrists and ankles.
The Full Body System can be effectively used to address a number of indications:
- Flexible kyphosis
- Flexible lordosis
- Excessive pelvic tilt
- Difficulty maintaining midline trunk and sitting balance
- Scissoring in stance or gait
- Balance problems due to hip muscle weakness
- Intoed or out-toed gait
- Proximal limb joint control issues
- “Windblown” gait
- Recovery following orthopedic surgery at the spine, hip, or femur
- Staggering gait due to cerebellar ataxia, adult onset or injury
- Balance loss due to Multiple Sclerosis
Working together, the client, clinician and caregiver can achieve these and similar outcomes with the Full Body System:
- Improved posture
- Improved respiratory capacity
- Reduced deviations between thorax and pelvis
- Increased sensory awareness
- Increased base of support
- Hip abductors assistance and support
- Assistance to hip stabilizing musculature
- Reduced functional degrees of freedom
- Assistance to muscles lacking adequate recruitment
- Reduced gait deviations
- Improved stability and comfort
- Support of post-surgery rehab goals
