Revivo’s main goal is to provide Intensive Therapy for individuals suffering from various neurological disorders and injuries, such as Cerebral Palsy, Brain Injury or Post Stroke condition.
Intensive Suit Therapy focuses on repetition of movement with progressive resistance to retrain and develop muscle memory. This combines with the traditional therapies we offer for a complete rehabilitation program.
We also offer Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – a specialized therapy, which enriches muscles blood cells with extra oxygen.
My experience with Revivo has been very positive and elating. My family and I have noticed vast improvement in Zain and his ability to do normal day to day activities. I still remember the day I was told that Zain suffers from a neurological disorder called Cerebral Palsy and a very limited list of things he will be able to do on his own. He wasn’t able to control the involutary movements of his hands, or lift his head on his own or be able to sit without any support. Thanks to the TheraSuit therapy at Revivo, some of that has changed.
I was very impressed with my son Thomas’ 3 week intensive block of suit therapy at Revivo Centre this summer. Being new and curious, I was eager to see how Thomas would respond to the input provided by the therapeutic suit and what if any freedom of movement it would provide. Because Thomas lacks the ability to balance and has further difficulty from excessive muscle tone in his legs, he cannot stand independently or walk - both require manual manipulation for safety and coordination.
A Novel, Highly Effective Approach

The Importance of Strengthening
The concept of strength development for cerebral palsy (CP) has recently become very popular. The idea of intensive therapy to treat patients with CP is supported by research. However, many professionals suffer from a lack of basic knowledge about strengthening physiology,
strength training, adaptation to exercises, etc.
