TASK SPECIFIC REHABILITATION
There is mounting evidence of the value of task-specific training as a neuromotor intervention in neurological rehabilitation. The evidence is founded in the psychology of motor skill learning and in the neuroscience of experience-dependent and learning-dependent neural plastic changes in the brains of animals and humans. Further, there is growing empirical evidence for the effectiveness of task-specific training in rehabilitation and for neural plastic changes following task-specific training in the context of rehabilitation.
The Gravity+ SuitTM is the only product available today that, when incorporated into physical rehabilitation allows you to more aggressively train the specific muscle tendon units required to dramatically increase the rate of motor skill recovery.
THE GRAVITY+ SYSTEM
The Gravity+ SuitTM increases the therapeutic effect of neurophysical exercises on the central nervous system, which is responsible for all of the body’s motor activity to a maximum extent possible. When the suit is worn during therapy, the suit’s adjustable resistance /compression stimulates the central nervous system while strengthening all muscle tendon units in the exact synergistic patterns in which they are used to perform any movement being rehabilitated.
The suit’s adjustable compression will also constrict respiratory muscles resulting in improved ventilation capacity of the lungs. This is of particular value to bedridden/wheelchair confined patients.
Because the Gravity+ SuitTM stimulates the body’s central nervous system causing the body’s muscle tendon groups to work harder during therapy, the patient will acquire an increased blood supply which greatly accelerates the healing process of the injured area.
