Weight bearing to reduce fear of movement

Amit is a three year old girl with Rett Syndrome, a genetic disorder which almost exclusively affects girls. Amit is hypotonic and anxious about movement, making play and interaction difficult for her to enjoy.

Clinical Background

In physical therapy, Amit is working on developing her weight-bearing abilities, to reduce her fear of movement. She also participates in hippotherapy where the multi-dimensional movement of the horse is helping her develop her balance and core postural control.

Our Approach

Amit was assessed using the Upsee, with a view to using it as a therapeutic tool to reduce her fear of movement, develop her weight bearing abilities, and encourage her to initiate movement herself.

The Result

Amit used the Upsee nearly every day as part of her therapy routine with her physiotherapist and her mother, when walking, listening to music or watching television. Initially she leaned back against the adult, but over time she began to stand more upright. Her therapist reported that Amit became more open to movement and more cooperative during therapy. At home, her mother enjoyed walking with Amit, but was unable to sustain this activity due to the prolonged stooping. The Upsee has provided a therapeutic tool for Amit’s therapist, as well as enabling Amit to play more interactively with her younger brother.
