VitalStim was part of a new therapy process used by THERAPY 2000, and since the agency had the highest concentration of certified personnel, we rolled out a bulletin that included a newsletter and patient case videos. The page is no longer live on T2000.com, but here are some sample pages and videos (which live on in YouTube):
Videos for the project:
Christian is an 11-year-old boy who had a normal birth history. At three weeks old,however, he acquired meningoencephalitis and developed a high fever. He suffered a seizure the second week of his hospital stay, which caused cerebral palsy. Christian was in and out of the hospital for the first six months of his life. He is fed through a gastric tube and receives breathing treatments.
Safa and Lana
Safa is a 3-year-old girl with anoxic brain damage, problems with swallowing, and convulsions. She was developing at an average rate with no complications until her accident, when she sustained anoxic brain damage after near drowning. Saga was taken to hospital and was in the ICU for two weeks, then stayed in the hospital for a month. She was then taken to Baylor for inpatient rehab for a month before returning home.
Lana is Safa’s 4-year-old sister, also with anoxic brain damage, receptive language disorder, and dysphagia. She, too, was developing at an average rate with no complications until her accident, when she sustained anoxic brain damage after near drowning.
