Cerebral Palsy (CP)
Conditions the Benefit from iFES
Maximizing Mobility for the Short and Long-Term
Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with cerebral palsy? Restorative Therapies can help.
Cerebral palsy (CP) can affect balance, movement, and muscle tone which can impact mobility, range of motion, and independence.
If you or a loved one have cerebral palsy, you may be looking for early treatment or a long-term management solution. Restorative Therapies offers both.
How Restorative Therapies Can Help
iFES therapy can help alleviate the effects of CP on your body. Proven benefits include:
- Cardiovascular fitness
- Postural control
- Gait training
Restorative Therapies has iFES systems to accommodate both adults and children so you can get the therapy you need early on or later in a CP diagnosis for long-term management.
- “Increased cadence, torque, power output.” –Johnston, 2011.
- “Both patients achieved a more symmetrical muscular strategy during gait and a significant reduction of muscle co-contractions. These improvements were corroborated by a decrease in oxygen expenditure and improvements in MAS.” –Trevisi, 2011.
