Understanding how TheraTogs was designed and by whom is important. Consider years working in a clinical environment. TheraTogs is designed by a pediatric physical therapist, Beverly “Billi” Cusick, PT, MS, C/NDT, COF, who wanted to extend and promote clinical changes for children with neuromotor dysfunction. Matching clinical function and clinical goals to a dynamic and versatile system is the How. The why? To allow children with neuromotor dysfunction to be children. To allow a child to play and expend less energy in order to do so. The other why? To minimize the need for surgeries and pain due to imbalances of joint and muscular systems.
How? Reverse engineer all the goals and methods utilized during clinical sessions. To reverse engineer the methods used during clinical sessions requires a clinician with strong clinical skills and strong academic background, aka Beverly Cusick. Why? That is not engineered. It is about seeing a deficit (frustration) in therapy and equipment options for a population in need (empathy and passion) and offering a clinical tool (clinical experience and expertise).

Anecdotal evidence is evidence. But anecdotal data is weak clinical evidence. Observational hypothesis derived from prior plausibility drives clinical research. What can you measure in clinic to gain insight into effects on:
