The Longest Journey Begins with a Single Step – Gait Trainers can Help.
Gait trainers are used for standing mobility when an individual is not yet able to consistently bear full weight through their legs, postural control is developing and cognitive skills are present to support the motivation to move from one place to another. The therapeutic benefits of gait trainers are well established. Gait Trainers help to address pre-ambulatory skill development. They offer the user a form of safe, independent mobility in the standing position often long before the individual is capable of walking on their own. This provides the opportunity to build postural strength and stability, alternating/ reciprocal leg movements for stepping and helps to improve overall endurance. Gait Trainers position children in upright standing like their typically developing peers and promotes social interactions and self- confidence.
