For our customers with developmental disabilities and similar needs, we carry a line of adaptive positioning and skill development equipment to make life more comfortable and to encourage improved motor skills, better posture, and improved muscle control.
Our brands include Skillbuilders and TumbleForms among others. Use our selection of positioning wedges, rolls and half rolls, positioning chairs and seats, collars,standers, and a host of other innovative products for both pediatric development and adult rehabilitation exercises.
Use of these products under the direction of adaptive therapy counselors can promote and restore independence to patients as they continue to develop towards their physical potential. Adaptive therapy can help those who have struggled with physical impairment from birth, those who have sustained a health-related setback (such as a stroke), and those who have experienced a injury (such as paralysis from an accident) adjust to daily expectations with more confidence.
Adaptive therapy involves three major elements of rehabilitation:
Changing the context of activities for which those with disabilities may have difficulties. This involves using functional tools to provide an environment for such activities as taking a bath, eating, and others which would be otherwise difficult or impossible because of a disability.
Establishing new habits and routines through repetition and emphasis.
Teaching new skills to compensate for impairment.
The adaptive therapy equipment available from ProHealthcareProducts.com has been developed to assist with both specific needs and for particular disability applications in some cases. In many cases, products (such as wedges and rolls) can be used for multiple forms of rehabilitative therapy.
