TheraTogs work in the same way a therapist’s hands do – supplying stability and correctional guidance that a clinician commonly uses in therapy sessions.
Designed to be Customized
TheraTogs are designed to be customized, trimmed and fitted to an individual wearer to address specific musculoskeletal, postural, balance, or movement issues. They are worn next to the skin, under clothing , where the foam material gently grips the wearer’s soft tissues to create the biomechanical changes that are key to positive outcomes. (The Wunzi Infant system is worn over the diaper).
A variety of strap lengths, widths, calibers of stiffness, and placement options optimize therapeutic and orthotic results.
Basic Fitting Process
Each TheraTogs system comes with a full set of illustrated instructions, and either a how-to DVD or links to how-to videos available online in our new TheraTogs University website.
The outer surface of TheraTogs components is Velcro® hook-sensitive. The components are fastened together using specifically-shaped translucent tabs made of custom hook material (provided). Strapping applications use similar tabs at their attachment points – a design which allows the clinician an infinite range of custom fitting and strapping positions for the wearer.
The ability to adapt the fit and strapping attachment points to create an orthotic garment customized to the wearer’s needs is one of the unique benefits of the TheraTogs system design. No compression garment or bracing system matches it.
Once properly fitted, the garments alone will begin to provide proprioceptive input and positioning cues to the neuromotor system. The placement of these garment closure and strap attachment points will vary significantly based on the TheraTogs system being used, and the clinical objectives to be met.
