The PediaSuit Protocol is a holistic approach for treating individuals with neurological disorders such as cerebral palsy, developmental delay, traumatic brain injury, autism and other conditions that affect a child's motor and / or cognitive functions. The key element is an individual empowerment program established for the child based on their individual needs. The Protocol is based on a program of specific and intensive exercises. It is a program that helps in eliminating pathological reflexes and establishing new patterns of correct and functional movements. The PediaSuit Protocol uses several tools. One of them is the soft orthosis dynamic proprioception called Suit. A clothing created in the 1970s by Russian scientists at NASA's request for use by astronauts, as they arrived from space with motor difficulties, loss of movement, muscle mass and weakened bone structure. The Suit consists of vest, cap, shorts, knee pads, footwear and a system of adjustable elastics, which plays a crucial role in normalizing muscle and vestibular tone and sensory function. Spider (cage) is used to train the child, it increases the ability to isolate the desired movements and strengthen the muscle groups responsible for this movement, being possible to provide community social and environmental changes, improving the chances of success sustainable development, able to supply the needs of the current generation, thus achieving its objectives.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
