The Movement Centre

Description:

The Movement Centre is an independent organisation situated within the grounds of the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry.

What we do:

  • The Movement Foundation was established to research and develop ways to improve movement control in children with disability such as cerebral palsy and opened the Movement Centre ten years ago for this purpose.
  • By combining pioneering therapy with specially designed equipment, an innovative technique called Targeted Training has been successfully developed by specialist physiotherapists and bioengineers.
  • The majority of children treated have experienced remarkable gains in postural control from Targeted Training and the importance of this new method in improving the quality of life of many children is increasingly recognised at a high professional level.
  • This therapy is helping disabled children with movement problems to gain essential functional skills and offering them the chance to lead a more independent and fulfilling life.
