The bespoke rehabilitation programmes we offer suit a wide variety of paediatric conditions including:
Our Activity-based Rehabilitation (ABR) programmes include:
Locomotor Training –
aims to reawaken dormant nerve pathways by repetitively stimulating nerves and muscles in the lower body and thus retrain the spinal cord to ‘remember’ the pattern of walking. During the session the child is suspended in a harness above a treadmill and practises standing and stepping with the aid of expertly trained therapists.
Wide-pulse Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation –
a unique form of electrical stimulation that is administered as part of an activity during which electrodes are applied to paralysed muscles and stimulus is delivered to stimulate the spinal cord circuitry to reawaken or strengthen nerve pathways.
The benefits of ABR varies from child to child but can include improved motor and sensory function, cardiovascular & pulmonary function, bowel/bladder behaviour, blood flow/circulation, skin and muscle health and improved skeletal development and health.
