Injecting innovation into traditional therapy practice, the SafeGait 360° Balance and Mobility Trainer® is a dynamic body-weight support and fall protection system that facilitates a modern, 1:1 therapist/patient interaction in a safe, efficient environment.

Developed in collaboration with rehabilitation experts, SafeGait 360° proprietary Patient Management Software offers an easy to use interface that tracks and documents performance measures in real time, by task and session.

SafeGait 360° Components

SafeGait is a ceiling-mounted dynamic Body-Weight Support (BWS) and Fall Protection system that tracks patient movements 2500 times per second. An overhead actuator unweights, protects and moves with the patient as they practice average daily living activities one-on-one with their therapist. Key performance measures including time, distance, repetitions, falls prevented, average BWS and speed are documented by session and task.

Patient Management Software

Proprietary Patient Management Software tracks patient performance and lets therapists compare data by session or specific task. An easy to use interface features a Plan of Care library and real-time monitoring. Therapists can compare outcomes in chart or detailed summary formats and export data to standard .CSV file format.

Dynamic Body-Weight Support (BWS)

Therapist controlled, adjustable on-the-fly, unloading of patient up to 50% of their weight. (175 lbs max). SafeGait’s dynamic BWS is always active and does not need to be reset, even after a fall has been prevented.

Dynamic Body Weight Support

Dynamic Fall Protection (DFP)

SafeGait’s patented software distinguishes between intentional movement downward and when a patient is falling. DFP promotes increased intensity and challenge so patients can "fail" safely and initiate correction while being dynamically supported and protected without disruption.

Fall Protection

Safe Patient Handling

Physical therapists and physical therapy assistants are regularly at risk of strain or injury associated with patient handling and movement during therapy. The risk of injury from falls during therapy threatens the safety of both patients and therapists, and the costs associated with it can create a substantial burden on the facility. The use of SafeGait in risk reduction protocols protects therapists and patients without compromising therapy.

Reduced Risk +

Reduced Staff Requirements

Traditional gait therapy often requires multiple therapists to safely work with a single patient. With SafeGait, facilities can optimize resources by enabling a safe, 1:1 therapist/patient interaction.

Reduced Staff +

Clinical and Economical Value

Designed to offer unrivaled overall value, SafeGait 360° promotes operational efficiency. Increase patient throughput, generate additional revenue, reduce patient risk and mitigate work related injuries.
