SPIO ;)

SPIO
Stabilizing Pressure Input Orthosis
The SPIO Superman Suit~
He won't take it off now!!!
SPIO is a compression system made of a patented, breathable, Lycra-blend material.  It has a multi-directional stretch and high rebound factor.  SPIO assists with stability and provides feedback through deep pressure and tactile stimulation.  The compression rations and design improve movement, limb and body position awareness and general stability and balance.

It is effective for~
Sensory deficits
Angelman, Down Syndrome and other syndromes
Cerebral Palsy
Hypotonia, Hypertonus, and spasticity
Brachial plexius injuries
Autism, Rett syndrome, and other pervasive developmental disorders
Related developmental delays and disabilities


Close up of Luke right after we first put the SPIO on him
The OTs at The Kaufman Children's Center had suggested that we use a compression garment on Luke to help with his attention and posture for the best possible sound production. 

SOOOOO, here it is...the answer to the problems~Luke's superman suit to the rescue.  He wore it around and almost refused to take it off.  The KCC suggested that we build up to 2 hours, starting at 30 minutes and then adding time.  We are using it in therapy and can't wait to share the results and video with you ;) in our next blog post.

Daddy helps get his pants pulled up~

Couldn't slow him down with this suit on~
Dyspraxia, Hypotonia, Sensory Processing Disorder ?!?
Whatcha talking about...???

And give it an A plus, plus, plus !!!
