  • NEUROLOGICAL:
  • Cerebral palsy (CP),

  • Development conditional nervous disorders,
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS),

  • OBJECTIVE: To improve neurological movement disorders.

 

  • IMPACT:
  • General regulation of muscle tone,
  • Stretch of shortened muscles,
  • Alignment of the torso and control of the torso,
  • Training selective movements of the pelvis,
  • Training and the establishment of independent stance and balancing reactions,
  • Activating the reactions of the torso which are specific for walking,
  • Symmetrical stance and reciprocal movement of the pelvis,
  • Improving the balance and coordination,
  • Learning sensory perception,
  • Learning coordination and improving the differentiation of individual muscle groups,
  • Control of the head (facilitation of controlling the head, which affects the control of the mouth, salivation, feeding and speech),
