Science of TheraTogs: Postural Control

Postural control is balance – the ability to maintain balance in a posture while attending to, and engaged in, a task. Postural control emerges on the basis of an innate necessity to gain and maintain upright postures, and is achieved and refined in all functioning positions and postures during the first 10 years of life, […]

Science of TheraTogs: Somatosensory Processing & Modulation

The somatosensory system uses nerve endings and receptors embedded in skin to detect tactile (touch) information about body contact with the environment and with objects, and uses endings and receptors embedded in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joint surfaces to receive proprioceptive information about body position in space and body segment positions relative to each other. […]

Science of TheraTogs: Biomechanics

Biomechanics is the science and study of and the influences of forces imposed upon the body while maintaining postures and during movement. The field of biomechanics examines the effects on motions and energy cost of such factors as the features of body alignment, the base of support (BOS), the location of the body center of […]
