Helping Adults with disabilities Moving Forward

CASE STUDY

MOVE-ING FORWARD
A therapeutic alternative for adults with multiple severe disabilities 

As a professional, Physiotherapy has allowed me to help my patients achieve goals that even they believed were unattainable, to be able to see our patients experience sitting alone, taking steps for the first time in their life or interacting more effectively with others despite their age, is something incredible.

The smiles on their faces are the best reward!!!

A different approach...

Most treatment programs for adult patients focus mainly on maintaining and preventing complications.

MOVE focus on task-oriented motor learning, the use of external aids and motivational support; could be a therapeutic alternative for adults with multiple disabilities to facilitate learning functional motor skills such as sitting, standing, walking and making transitions.
