The long-awaited TheraTogs "starter system" is here... The Posture & Torso Alignment (PTA) system is an entry level product especially designed for clinicians and clients who are new to TheraTogs. “The most basic human response to gravity is to strive to achieve and maintain the upright position. Weakness of the core musculature compromises that effort, produces muscle imbalances, and can interfere with limb function by recruiting limb muscles for balance.” - Beverly Cusick, PT, MS, TheraTogs inventor
The PTA was designed to leverage that human ‘upright’ response into improved functional alignment, taking full advantage of the neuromotor system’s ability to ‘learn’ and adapt.
The PTA system consists of two garments and a small set of straps – a basic system that’s simple to apply, cost-effective, and easy to train caregivers in its use.
The newest addition to the TheraTogs ULTRA line, the PTA is made of our special new GoldTone fabric, designed specifically for neuromotor retraining.
The PTA can give your clients:
- Improved posture
- Improved core strength
- Improved respiratory capacity
- Reduced torso deviations between thorax and pelvis
- Increased sensory awareness
- Gentle shoulder retraction
- Gentle scapular stabilization
The PTA system is exactly what your child needs to get started in TheraTogs.
Simple to use, it only takes a few minutes to put on, and it gives your child postural and torso retraining all day long.

- Flexible kyphosis
- Flexible lordosis
- Excess pelvic tilt
- Sitting balance issues
