Get more confidence performing your everyday tasks!

The Upright & Active group is designed for patients who have a neurological disorder and/or physical disability which impacts on functional balance, spatial awareness and proprioception.

We support clients with a wide range of disabilities including:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Down Syndrome
  • Stroke

 

Key focus areas?

  • Spatial awareness and proprioception
  • Gross motor development including particularly focus on lower limb strength and endurance
  • Functional balance
  • Motor sequencing and planning

The outcomes achieved by our program enable participants to better perform everyday tasks with more confidence such as:

  • Walking to the shops
  • Standing at a bench
  • Getting safely out of a chair
  • Managing stairs safely

 

What's included?

  • Individualised assessment before and after the program which enables our staff to set realistic goals with the patient, monitor progress and plan for future intervention
  • Weekly sessions plus an individualised home exercise program to complete one to two times per week

 

Who is the group run by?

An ESSA accredited exercise physiologist will design and run groups up to 3 participants.
