Sensorimotor therapy is a recommendable part of intensive neurorehabilitation.
In the locomotion center, we have developed a special motivation sensory path that clients walk through in a space outfit with help, independently or in a wheelchair. The sensory aids located on the sides of this track motivate them to touch, explore and move forward and have a fun. Weather permitting, we use a very popular outdoor rehabilitation aid for therapies - a barefoot sidewalk.
This therapy supports development of immature or insufficiently differentiated nervous system in children in the form of an active play. This is choice of activities according to the preferences of the child itself so that the child enjoys the activity. On a voluntary basis, we can immediately observe improved behavior. The healthy brain creates sensory integration on its own. In contrast, a brain that has been adversely affected needs more stimuli to normalize its own sensory perception. SID (sensory integration dysfunction) is a neurological disorder in which the brain is unable to accurately process some of the information it has received through the senses. This dysfunction manifests itself in a large proportion of clients with neurological diseases.
Sensorimotor therapies based on sensory integration and education have an evident influence on the overall development of an individual's personality. Everything that can be perceived by the senses stimulates our body to be active, ie to acquire new motor skills, which are especially difficult and slow to acquire, especially for people with a combined disability. Sensorimotor education, which is based primarily on sensory perception, prefers direct contact of patients with reality. It uses and develops sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch.
