Activity Based Therapy (NeuroMoves)
An intensive program designed to maximise functional recovery and independence, allowing clients to undertake specific skill acquisition tasks in a simulated environment using specialised equipment and a high level of manual assistance. Each client’s program is individually tailored with the aim of developing the skills necessary to achieve functional goals. Sessions may involve strengthening core/trunk, upper and lower limbs; whole body coordination; partial/ full weight bearing activities; balance, stability and postural control exercises and locomotor training. *Home visits now available. Travel costs apply. *Available in Gym or through Telehealth and Home visits (travel costs apply).
FES is a validated rehabilitation technique that administers pulses of electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves (the neurons that connect the spinal cord to the muscles), generating involuntary muscle contractions and patterned muscle activity. FES is non-invasive and applied using adhesive neuro-electrostimulation pads placed over prime mover muscles. When activated, FES achieves patterned movements in the arms/legs and trunk during cycling on the RT-300 bike. Dependent on the individual, benefits can vary, but commonly demonstrate increased blood circulation and prevention of muscle-wasting.
