The DIC gets Leading Edge Physical Therapy Equipment
The Detroit Institute for Children recently acquired a new piece of therapeutic equipment that will play a significant role in improving the lives of our children! The Universal Exercise Unit or UEU for short, allows therapists to isolate specific muscle groups for strengthening, critical for children whose disabilities affect their ability to isolate and/or control muscle movement. The UEU improves physical therapy outcomes by allowing children and therapists to work on activities that would normally involve multiple therapists by acting as extra hands. In addition, it greatly accelerates physical therapy outcomes by addressing these children's weakness and deconditioning resulting from limited physical activity and limited range of motion. The UEU has been made available through the generous support of the Detroit Industrial School, Ms. JoElyn Nyman and The Junior League of Detroit.
