Exercise Physiology

What can we provide in an Exercise Physiology session at Brain Train?

As part of Brain Train’s commitment to providing an integrated network of therapies to help children and adults with autism and other neurodevelopmental and neurological challenges to thrive, our Exercise Physiology team can help with:

  • Assessment of daily living capabilities, motor patterns and developmental delays;
  • Gait analysis and re-training;
  • Global muscle tone development;
  • Improvement of global motor patterns;
  • Gross and fine motor skill development;
  • Reducing falls risk and improving balance and proprioception;

Our Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP’s) assess current activity levels and physical capacities and carefully tailor interventions to ensure they are purposeful and in-line with best practice guidelines, but also fun, enjoyable, appropriately challenging and family centered.

Our team works with children and adults with:

  • Developmental or motor milestone delays;
  • Coordination issues and clumsiness;
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI);
  • Cerebral Palsy (CP) and muscular dystrophies / atrophies;
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS);
  • Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and degenerative neurological conditions;
  • Strokes;
  • Musculoskeletal issues and disorders;
  • Specific motor skill deficits

What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP)?

An AEP is an allied health professional who has completed a minimum 4 year university undergraduate degree or a Masters degree and is equipped with the knowledge, skills and competencies to design, deliver and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions for people with acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities.

The videos above are examples of our individualised EP sessions that are goal-orientated and carefully designed to be appropriately challenging whilst also being plenty of fun!
