Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) Therapy
Clients with Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) (also commonly known as conversion disorder) will generally present with a range of symptoms and experienced a lengthy period of time without a diagnosis or support services.
Many people with functional symptoms have faced a long journey to feel heard, and need the support of a comprehensive multi-disciplinary treatment program to manage symptoms.
The low awareness of FND in Australia has meant that support services and awareness of allied health professionals is still emerging. But the need for services for clients can’t wait.
At RoboFit we offer Australia’s first neuro-responsive exoskeleton for those living with FND looking to address their symptoms for example increase their strength, mobility, and reduce muscle spasticity.
The HAL exoskeleton combines assistive technology with biofeedback. Through electrodes HAL is able to read signals being sent from the brain. RoboFit’s exercise physiologists and physiotherapists are certifed in exoskeleton training, with extensive training that allow them to personalise the session based on the data being collected in real time. What does this mean? Therapists are able to see what muscle groups are firing, and when to assist personalising therapy to where a client is at and personalising support to help encourage the right neural pathways.

Explore what’s possible
Building on a foundation of traditional exercise physiology, our certified therapists harness the power of HAL to help people living with Functional Neurological Disorder achieve their goals.
Our sessions are done in a safe environment with falls prevention practices in place, with therapists using real-time data from the exoskeletons to meticulously craft a personalised training session.
Neurological physiotherapy targets neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the ability of neural networks in the brain to change and adapt through experience, growth, and re-organization.
Treatments for people living with Functional Neurological Disorder are focused on improving motor control, balance and coordination.
We offer remote consultations with our therapists for those wishing to explore what training at RoboFit can do for them.
We offer a free 30 minute weekly group telehealth session that anyone can join and do from their home.
