Spider Cage Therapy
About the Spider Cage
The Universal Exercise Unit (also known as 'Spider Cage') is a multifunctional tool that can be used for improving range of motion, strength, and flexibility through the use of pulley systems and swings.
How Does the Spider Cage Work?
Different activities of functional training can be practiced in the cage, often with the combination of additional tools, like therapy table and treadmill. Elastic resistance of cords can be used to strengthen the weak muscles, and to provide additional stability in areas where it's most needed.
There's been research done on the use of the Spider Cage with kids with cerebral palsy, however, we believe that it could be of immense value in therapy with all children with gross-motor challenges.
