Theratogs/Second skin for child with ataxic low tone cp?
 
Hi, I'm new to this forum. My 2 yo son has been diagnosed with ataxic cp and low muscle tone last year. He can roll but cannot sit or crawl yet :( He is slowly improving but his trunk muscles are weak and his balance is poor. He gets therapy and all that but I've heard about theratogs and second skin for children with cp and how they can improve balance by giving extra support etc. They look like a wetsuit they wear under their clothes.

Has anyone had experience with these?
Cheers
