Our Intensity Program may be incorporated in outpatient physical therapy and occupational therapy care plans to intensify results. Here, patients receive a much higher frequency of therapy than in traditional programs — two hours a day, five days a week for three weeks, involving parents and caregivers in each session. By intensifying therapy, we also intensify the results. This can be especially meaningful for patients with neurological diagnoses, brain injuries, or movement disorders.
Through our intensity program, patients may receive treatments such as:
Universal Exercise Unit (UEU)
- Therapeutic massage
- Manual therapy
- Balance/coordination therapy
- Neurodevelopmental treatment
- Sensory integration therapy
- Universal Exercise Unit (UEU)
The Universal Exercise Unit is a versatile device in which use of a pulley system of weights allows for a child to isolate and strengthen individual muscles through the entire range of motion. The UEU can also be set up as a "spider" system, which consists of a belt and bungee cords. The "spider" system is a dynamic system in which the child can perform functional activities while the bungee cords assist with independent movement.
