NEUROLOGICAL RECOVERY

GUIDED ACTIVITY BASED THERAPY

Activity Based Therapy (ABT) is a therapeutic activity used in recovery and rehabilitation to improve strength and regain motor function after a traumatic injury or neurological condition. Guided activity based sessions consist of 1 on 1 or 2 on 1 with a certified activity based therapy specialist. Our trainers will work with you to promote functional movement and improved health.

NEUROMUSCULAR ELECTRICAL STIMULATION

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation is a form of therapy that uses high frequency, wide pulse width, task specific stimulation to generate motor output while increasing the central state of excitability in the spinal cord. Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation is provided via the restorative Therapies Incorporated Sage Unit with the Xcite Software and uses lead wires to 12 different muscle groups based on the targeted item from the Neuromuscular Recovery Scale. Tasks are performed with and without stimulation to transfer to improved neuromuscular capacity at home and in the community.

GAIT & LOCOMOTOR TRAINING

Locomotor Training allows individuals living with paralysis to repetitively practice standing and stepping using body weight support. In a therapy session, the participant is suspended in a harness over a treadmill while specially trained therapists move his or her legs and body to simulate walking. As the person gains function, improvements in sitting, standing, reaching, grasping or walking canoccur.
