Gait and Balance Therapy

Gait Therapy Reinvented

The SafeGait 360 is an all-in-one system that supports safe locomotion and gives therapists the ability to challenge patients in functional ‘real-world’ scenarios, which are often difficult or too risky to simulate. Before SafeGait, the therapist had to manually provide support and fall control—an anxiety-provoking situation for both individuals.

Decreased pain and improved endurance are obvious patient benefits with use of a body-weight support system. Subtler benefits include stability across multiple planes, including control of how quickly the patient sits down.

Confidence Drives Recovery

Patients with fall injuries often suffer from crippling anxiety, which leads them to decrease their daily activity. That causes weakness and, therefore, further increases their risk for falls. SafeGait has allowed some of these individuals to get over that anxiety quicker, develop confidence in their therapists and recover sooner.

With SafeGait, instead of focusing on avoiding injury, patients can give full attention to taking steps, improving stride and overcoming balance concerns all with the confidence that the System will protect them from a fall, yet still allow for full range of motion.

Without barriers, patients experience the feeling of free walking and can work with walkers and other assistive devices as part of their therapy regimen. Rather than shape therapy sessions around a patient’s fear of falling, SafeGait frees the therapist to pursue activities and set a pace which encourages more rapid progress.

We often see that patients direct us when to reduce the amount of support, which corresponds to their level of confidence with an activity.
– Darren Vogt, PT, Director of Rehabilitation, Monroe Community Hospital

Balance Therapy Reinvented

Regaining balance can be a scary process for patients. The SafeGait System provides a comfortable environment for the patient with real-time feedback for the therapist.

Controlled Balance Provides Patient Peace of Mind

The SafeGait system helps patients feel more comfortable in an unnerving situation. With the SafeGait system, patients can practice everyday activities from getting up out of a chair to walking across the room with the confidence.

Tracking progress in balance therapy

SafeGait’s Patient Management Software not only provides easy system control, but also documents patient performance across an array of key progress stages. As your patients progress, you’ll be able to see the areas of improvement, focus on the right next steps – and graphically share the results.
