Sparrow Hospital has a new way to treat kids with cerebral palsy and other serious conditions.

Staff and patients showed off the TheraSuit on Monday. 

The suit comes in multiple pieces and resembles football padding.

It helps change the pressure from joints, ligaments and muscles to help restore the body's proper ligament patterns and alignment.

Long-term it can help patients get stronger and develop a better range of motion.
