Gait Training Enhanced by Expanding Technology Options

Gorbel® Medical Revealed Expanded Portfolio of Rehabilitation Solutions at CSM’16 Show

Anaheim, CA –February 18, 2016 – Over 10,000 physical therapy professionals from around the nation witnessed the unveiling of Gorbel® Medical’s latest rehabilitation technology in the SafeGait Solutions portfolio at the Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) in Anaheim, California from February 18-20.
The SafeGait 360° Balance and Mobility Trainer®, launched at CSM in 2014, exhibited this year with new and enhanced features in its Patient Management Software for gait training.  SafeGait™ 360°— a ceiling-mounted dynamic body-weight support and fall protection system, now includes a proprietary Horizontal Lock mode designed to make challenge focused therapy safer, in addition to software that provides time-stamping and standardized export to facilitate research and patient data comparison.

Expanded Technology Options for Balance and Gait Training

Gorbel® Medical also gave therapists a first look at two brand new devices: the SafeGait ACTIVE™ Dynamic Mobility Trainer and the SafeGait EMBRACE™ Rehabilitation Harness.

“SafeGait ACTIVE™ fills a major hole in the non-robotic, overhead rehabilitation device market,” explains Gorbel® Medical CEO, Brian Reh. “SafeGait ACTIVE™ provides cost effective fall protection to patients who do not require body-weight support and are at risk for falls, but unlike ‘passive’ or ‘base’ devices, patients are not limited to only moving in the horizontal plane.” A proprietary design enables patients to safely perform ADL activities, including floor work and sit-to-stand, and gives therapists the ability to adjust fall sensitivity levels to increase challenge. “Patients aren’t only at risk for falls when walking, so we built a rehabilitation system that wouldn’t limit them to only performing gait training tasks.” said Reh.
Also unveiled at CSM is SafeGait EMBRACE™ Rehabilitation Harness, unique harness designed for use with a wide array of body-weight support and fall protection systems. SafeGait EMBRACE addresses traditional harness ‘pain points’ by allowing patients to comfortably and safely practice gait training, balance and falls management exercises. “We relied heavily on therapists’ input when designing the SafeGait EMBRACE,” stated Betty Dolce, Gorbel® Medical General Manager. “Their expertise and contributions are evident in every aspect of the device; from the easy to apply design, to the comfortable material and securing features.”
