This program is delivered by credentialed therapists who are highly experienced in the specialised methods and techniques of locomotor training. 


Prior to commencing the program, a physiotherapist will assess and work collaboratively with each individual/family to set the goals that will shape the individualised program. Locomotor training may include several different methods of training such as partial body weight support, overground walk training and the use of neuroprosthetics (functional electrical stimulation devices that help activate muscles during walking). 


The number of therapists that are required to provide the training safely for specific positioning and facilitation techniques will also be determined at the initial assessment.


Duration:

This intensive therapy program involves 3 sessions per week for 6 weeks. 


OPTION 1:

For children and young adults who rely mainly on wheelchairs or walking frames during the day, 2 therapists will provide the training in each session. 


OPTION 2:

For children and young adults who usually walk without wheelchairs or walking frames, 1 therapist may be all that is required to provide the training.
