Tilt tables

The vivid and rewarding games can be played independently or with supervision, alone or in a group.

There are a range of games, requiring different levels of cognition from the user to engage in them. At IOT we have used these games with people with moderate to severe levels of intellectual disability. These clients have been able to engage and enjoyed playing the games. There are games designed so that there is no capacity for the person playing them to fail at the game. This is difficult to achieve with any other type of game. This is the unique feature that IOT value so highly for our clients.

Tilt tables

Currently IOT has the only privately tilt tables available in the Illawarra/Shoalhaven region. The primary purpose of a tilt table is to provide the ability to stand to those who are unable, or find it difficult, to stand upright. The medical benefits of standing include to:

  • Improve and maintain bone integrity
  • Strengthen cardiovascular (heart) systems and build muscular endurance
  • Improve circulation
  • Reduce blood pressure variations
  • Improve bowel function and regularity
  • Aid kidney and bladder function

Participants who would benefit from tilt tabling include, but are not limited, to:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Stroke
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Acquired brain injury (ABI)
