NAPA Center’s Intensive Physical therapy program is an intensive approach to physical therapy consisting of 60 to 90 hours of vigorous therapy in just 3 weeks using the NeuroSuit and Universal Exercise Units. This is highly effective method of treatment uses cutting edge methods to challenge the child and achieve new physical abilities. The NeuroSuit utilizes technology originally from the Russian space program to fight the effects of weightlessness. The NeuroSuit helps hold the patient’s body in correct alignment and adds additional weight bearing through the use of bungee type bands that are attached on the suit.
The NeuroSuit frames the body providing support and resistance simultaneously. It improves and changes proprioception (pressure from the joints, ligaments, muscles), reduce a patient’s undesired reflexes, facilitates proper movement and provides additional weight bearing distributed strategically throughout the body.
