The Adjustability programme was developed and based on scientific literature, for people who have been affected by a spinal cord injury (SCI). The main aim of our programme is to maximise neuromuscular activation, strength, cardiovascular fitness and functionality in quadriplegic and paraplegic patients. By participating in our programme we aim to stimulate neuromuscular pathways as effectively as possible with our intensively focused exercise regime.
We make use of the Ekso Bionic walking suit, which enables individuals to go from sit-to-stand and walk again. The suit is extremely beneficial , as it is scientifically proven to increase blood circulation, improve bone density, core activation, re-centering your centre of gravity, reduce the risk of urinary tract infection, improves blood pressure regulation as well as stimulates an active gait(walking) pattern.
Our program entails intense physical exercise with the use of a range of equipment including the Ekso Bionic walking suit, parallel bars, SciFit stationary bike, the Total gym and a cable exercise machine as well as a range of scientific based exercises. Our Biokineticists work closely with the patient with the aim to increase their functionality and to progress the patient as far as possible. A unique aspect to our Adjustability programme is that we offer two biokineticists working with the patient at all times, in order to produce better outcomes more effectively.
The Adjustability program can be divided into a 6,8 or 12 week program, with 2 hours of intense therapy twice or three times a week.
